Lake Phoenix: The Island / Emscherkunst
Emschergenossenschaft invited Erik van Lieshout to participate in 'Emscherkunst.2016', the third triennial focused on the ecological restauration of the Emscher, which runs through the Ruhr. The first edition of 'Emscherkunst' was in 2010 part of the Ruhr, Cultural Capital of Europe. Every following edition attracted more visitors, and each edition takes a trajectory of the Emscher for its account. In 2016 the trajectory was from the source Holzwickede until Recklinghausen, which included Dortmund.
