Harboring the Social – On Sculptures Internationally and the Messiness of Public Practice

In the second broadcast of Radio Paleis Maashaven hosted live from the Afrikaanderwijk Cooperative in the Gemaal op Zuid, Jeanne van Heeswijk will be in (online) conversation with artists, curators, activists, musicians and researchers about art as public practice.

Harboring the Social
is an ongoing research by artist Jeanne van Heeswijk that reflects on caring for each other in a changing city. To open up new spaces for collectivity, solidarity and connection. Taking place over many years with many collaborators resulting in multiple manifestations.

The latest of which is Social Harbor – Moving Words, a light installation, where artists, residents, poets and other makers are invited to reflect on the continuous crisis and the current situation in our city. Exploring questions such as: How do we communicate with each other? How do we give words to our current situation? How do we meet each other? How do we take care of each other? How do we move forward? Everyday displaying new poetic perspectives, stories, statements, calls and messages as part of Studio Paleis Maashaven the installation is attached to the facade of Het Gemaal op Zuid at the Afrikaander @wijkcooperatie , visible from the Afrikaandermarket. These words function as anchors to the ways in which we can live together in this time of ‘global breakdown’.

𝗚𝗿𝗼𝘂𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗱 𝗪𝗵𝗶𝗹𝗲 𝗪𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘀 𝗙𝗮𝗹𝗹 is a sci-fi documentary focusing on practices of resilience and spiritual grounding among organizers, cultural workers, and social movement builders in Greater Philadelphia. Revolving around the question, “What practices keep you grounded in your work for social change?,” the work explores spirituality, care of self and community, and inner power at the grassroots. From awareness of self and community to connection with ancestors, access to spiritual wisdom and emotional intelligence, centeredness in the body and feeling, as well as one’s own agency and power, the notion of being “grounded” assumes a variety of meanings that form a resourceful foundation of strength in times of profound transformation.

The film has been made within the framework of Philadelphia Assembled (2017).
