Lab Portal 9: The TeaMachine, GrondVormen


GrondVormen presents a large mythical installation in which both new and
previously realized laboratory installations are combined and connected to
form the ultimate tea brewery. The TeaMachine is an installation of
plants, glass, volumes and curious objects which give the impression of a
laboratory with aspects bordering on the incredible. The almost inimitable
maze of tubes, hoses, laboratory glass and plants evokes curiosity and
challenges the viewer to discover the workings of the machine, in which
the border between fact and fiction disappears. During the exhibition
elaborate tea ceremonies will be organized. As part of the ceremonies, a
wild harvest walk in which the public explores the park to find
ingredients for tea will be offered. Tea forms the substance for an
exploration of the cross points of natural and cultural meanings.
