It was Forever Summer
Can a tomato be preserved as an art object in the museum’s collection?’
Underlying the development of the spatial installation in the Eye is the climatic connection between the greenhouse and the museum depot. 18° C and a humidity of 55% connects these different worlds. We developed a spatial installation as an ecosystem; a series of hybrid pieces of furniture that show characteristics of transport boxes of air-conditioned artworks, which are monitored during transport for temperature, humidity and vibrations.
We activated the installation through weekly maintenance, some events with the tomato community and a series of performative acts that resulted. Currently, the Weedkeeper is working on the elaboration of a video work.
