Tuin der Lusten25 Jul – 19 Sep 2009 / Exhibition@Nest
When invited to query presentation René Jansen proposed to turn Nest into an indoor city park including allotments in which tomatoes could grow, performances could take place and people from the neighborhood could meet and relax.
As a result during the summer Nest was filled with earth, grass, vegetables, a mushroom cave with a stage on top and a dark basement for the growth of chicory. People gathered for performances by amateur and professional dancegroups, country-rockbands and experimental artists while enjoying the fruits of the garden that were cultivated by volunteers from inside and outside the DCR, the cultural breeding ground in which Nest resides. During this week groups of children came around to learn how a cucumber grows or how to cook a stuffed pepper.
