In February 2022 we received a request from Kunsthalle Wilhelmshaven, an institution in a coastal town on the Jade Bight in northern Germany, enquiring about including images of Jan Dibbets’s “6 Hours Tide Object with Correction of Perspective” (2009) in the catalogue of the 2021 exhibition “By The Sea. Land Art, Performance and Minimal Art” focused around ephemeral works of happening at the seaside.
We just received a copy of the catalogue which features work by Milan Adamčiak/Jozef Revallo/Róbert Cyprich, Bas Jan Ader, Nikita Alexeev, Keith Arnatt, Artur Barrio, Bård Breivik, John Cage, Oddvar IN Daren, Ina Hagen, Lumír Hladík, Peter Hutchinson, Tadeusz Kantor, Inghild Karlsen, Alison Knowles, Jiří Kovanda, Milan Kozelka, Jeewi Lee, Cecylia Malik, Ana Mendieta, Fina Miralles, Jüri Okas, Ewa Partum, Zorka Ságlová, Gerry Schum, Mieko Shiomi, Robert Smithson, Gerd Tinglum, The Deadly Doris and Ben Vautier.

Jan Dibbets’s project consisted of a reenactment of his “12 Hours Tide Object with Correction of Perspective” (1969) commissioned by Latitudes forty years later to inaugurate the “Portscapes” series of accumulative projects in and around the Port of Rotterdam, the largest seaport in Europe. Portscapes projects were later displayed at the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam in 2010. “Portscapes” was produced by the Port of Rotterdam Authority in collaboration with the sadly now-defunct internationally operating Dutch cultural organisation SKOR | Foundation Art and Public Space (1999–2012).
