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.
