Aubergine Season Relay

Every year during week 44 the "olympic fire" of the aubergine season is passed on from Westland (Netherlands) to Almería (Spain) to mark the switch of the seasons between Europe’s two biggest exporters of aubergines. Looking at how the season is directed by economic aspects, and what are the logistics making this switch possible, the project follows the aubergine season and its pathways and traces in Europe.

The project is part of my work within Seasonal Neighbours, a loose-fixed collective, focusing on different forms of seasonality and forms of cohabitation in Europe’s countryside.
