Hinterland. August – November 2009

Hinterland is led by independent curator, Jennie Syson. Working together with artists, Hinterland was set up to closely examine geographical areas that surround the River Trent in Nottingham, which make up a ten-mile car free cycle route around the city known as the Big Track. Temporary site-specific commissions are selected to scrutinise specific places as though encapsulated in a species quadrant.

Hinterland commissioned a series of Field Kitchen events over summer and autumn 2009, to investigate wild food around the River Trent.


Thu, 26th Nov 2009 10am – 5pm:   Hinterland Symposium: The evolving relationships between artists, the changing climate and new responsibilities. Alongside informal discussions with artists currently engaged in commissions for Hinterland, this one day event questioned the responsibilities of artists in different situations when creating work in the public realm.

Weds 23rd- Thurs 24th September 2009: The Floating Kitchen: With ten guests,  a narrowboat turned floating kitchen explored Nottingham’s waterways in search of foraged food. The trip involved an overnight mooring where a foraged meal, cooked outdoors was cooked and shared, and wild medicines were concocted with the guidance of our guest herbalist.

Publications: The third of the Hinterland publications will be out shortly, which includes transcripts from the symposium. Volume two includes documentation of Field Kitchen  foraging trips and the Floating Kitchen. http://www.hinterlandprojects.com/shop

For 2 Degrees, as part of C.R.A.S.H Culture, Field Kitchen will be roaming the financial district of London in search of edible plants, asking – how far do you need to go from the heart of Capital to find life? This intervention investigates botanical poverty in the richest part of the country, looking for a different kind of wealth.


Two Degrees is Artsadmin’s week long programme of work by radical and politically engaged artists about climate change and our relationship with the environment.
