September 3 – October 3, 2010: Reclamation’s TERRARIUM is a living room. Invoking the studio, the gallery, the performance venue, and the house of worship- TERRARIUM creates an open space for celebrating, debating, and guiding a mess.
Enjoying its first international residency at Hotel MariaKapel in Hoorn, NL, Reclamation repurposes waste generated by the citizens of Hoorn to represent three climates – a jungle, a desert, and a forest. Sustained by a suspended rainwater aqueduct, these disparate ecosystems collide inside a Medieval chapel where Reclamation chooses to celebrate complicated reconstitutions of the jungle, desert and forest as we remember them, as we imagine them, and as we encounter them in folklore, legislation and media rather than as fetishized ideals of ‘nature’. Reclamation considers the effect of mass marketing and mass imagining upon the environment and the inhabitants in TERRARIUM, a Medieval chapel cum human vivarium.
TERRARIUM featured weekly performances, lectures, and workshops for school children.
