Knockvologan Studies is situated on the Isle of Mull in Scotland and is founded by Miek Zwamborn and Rutger Emmelkamp in 2016.
It is a place for collaborations. We intend to work with a wide range of people in close contact with the land. We invite specialists and generalists, locals and faraway colleagues to work with us in order to build a multi-facetted vision of the land that accommodates us.

This summer we will install an observatory on the Dutch Island Vlieland during the Into The Great Wide Open festival. In this observatory we will show work by Lotje van Lieshout, Severine Amsing, Rebecca Bego, Richard van Diessen, Sae Honda and ourselves.
All work relates to Knockvologan and its surroundings.


How can a landscape, looked at through different eyes, and mapped out in a polyphonic and sensory way, grant new insights and outlooks, generate stories and offer possibilities for a more sustainable relationship between humans and their habitat?
