So You Don't Get Lost in the Neighborhood #13 | Maartje  Korstanje

Sunday September 24, artist Maartje Korstanje guided her audience along the shore and dunes of Zeeuws-Vlaanderen, to her atelier and VierVaart – a place for recreation, small-scale farming and contemporary art.

After having worked and lived in Amsterdam and after having participated in artist-in-residence programs in Calcutta and New York, Maartje Korstanje returned to Zeeland in 2017. Together with her family she runs VierVaart, a self-supporting and small-scale camping with an emphasis on contemporary art. Maartje Korstanje’s studio is located here as well.

On Sunday September 24, the group of participants gathered at the ferry pier in Breskens. From Breskens, they cycled a route of approximately 12 km along the dunes towards VierVaart, where a local beer from Marckensteijn was waiting for them. After the guided tour in Maartje Korstanje’s studio, the group headed back to Breskens (via a shorter route) by bike.


Vleeshal is an internationally oriented center for contemporary art, rooted in Zeeland. In Zeeland Focus, Vleeshal highlights regional artists, takes part in and celebrates local contemporary art and culture.

For So You Don’t Get Lost in the Neighborhood, Vleeshal invited artists from Zeeland to take on the role of a compass and guide their audience to interesting and inspiring places in Zeeland. The title comes from the English translation of Patrick Modiano’s book Pour que tu ne te perds pas dans le quartier written in 2014, the year Modiano won the Nobel Prize in Literature. This series took place from 2015-2018.
