Long Weekend

Long Weekend examines the landscape of the mining industry as contemporary archaeological heritage. Licari explores how sand mining and artificial lakes as by-products of the process, have shaped the Limburg region. By inviting the visitor to enjoy a moment of relaxation in an indoor spa, Licari’s project is a reminder that industrial inventiveness constantly devises new ways to continue exploiting natural resources.

Long Weekend is the result of a year long research into the mining industry of the Limburg region, part of the NEARCH project. Photos by Werner Matz Lab.
