Deep Time Agency proudly presents its first solo exhibition at Het Nieuwe Instituut. A multi-year, artistic research initiative, the agency
re-contextualises archaeological and paleontological objects in (post-)industrial landscapes, in collaboration with local residents, stakeholders and institutions. The result is a series of case studies that highlights changing landscapes and found objects and brings them together in an overarching artistic project.

The first four parts, Descent into the Future (2020), Concrete Reef (2022), Ancestors Rising (2022) and Swamp Palace (2022), can now be seen in Gallery 3. The long, vertical space of Gallery 3 functions as a mineshaft in this exhibition, highlighting various finds from geological layers and excavation sites explored in the agency’s different projects.
