Walk & performative tasting event: Botanicals / Misc. props


︎︎︎ Work developed in collaboration w/ Mike Thompson — TRANSaction: Sonsbeek 2016 — Curated by:  Ruangrupa, presented at Ruruhuis, (Arnhem, NL)



Jamu is an Indonesian traditional medicinal drink made from different botanicals.

As part of the events leading up to Sonsbeek ‘16, we performed a guided walk through Sonsbeek park with forest ranger Jeroen Glissenaar, visiting different plants and sharing the many stories that have allowed Sonsbeek and the city of Arnhem to co-evolve.

Collecting our own botanicals, we returned to Ruruhuis for some more Nongkrong - an indonesian term meaning ‘chat, without particular subject or purpose’ - making and tasting Sonsbeek-inspired Jamu.
