On SEA & LAND
The Province of Zeeland (The Netherlands) boasts a rich history in terms of trade and agriculture.
This wealth has traditionally been reflected in the local population’s clothes and jewelry.
While it is interesting to research the aesthetics of these objects, such wealth also raises questions about its origins.
The fact is that wealth comes at a price, as historical research has shown.
On Sea & Land provides a missing link between historians and the public.
It visualizes the more difficult aspects of local history such as slave trade in products using traditional local crafts.
