The third occurrence of the Reacclimatizations project initiated in 2018, the flower-attentive work consists of the weekly realization of a floral arrangement in a vase designed by Pertti Santalahti in the 1970s (Kasvimaalla series), supplemented by a sceno-photo-graphic montage and a GIF, the last two made and generated after the flower composition. Over the three weeks of the show, three arrangements in three different vases, plus the supplementary elements, will be made and installed.
The performance-installation was premiered at the beginning of August at Mustarinda Residency in the context of Kasviaika Festival 2022.
Vincent Roumagnac (DA) is a Helsinki-based Basque-French artist and researcher. Initially trained as an actor and a director, Roumagnac drifted away from “straight theatre”’s infrastructures and regimes of production to look at how the notion and practice of the “stage” transform through contemporary climate-morphing and techno-ecological conditioning. For this, he has proposed, and has been implementing with, the tentative ecodramaturgical notions of “redirecting/deepening/reacclimating” the stage, and “reecologizing” theatre. In parallel, Vincent has been practicing floral design, based on the techniques learned in his youth in a family of florists and gardeners, and on the practice of ikebana he has developed during several stays in Japan. His work is currently supported by the Arts Promotion Centre Finland.

Reacclimatizations III is the continuation of the Reacclimatizations project carried out and exhibited during the Barcelona Night of Museums in 2018 as an outcome of a research residency undergone by Roumagnac in the reserves of the Museum of Scenic Arts of Barcelona Theater Institute (Institut del Teatre). The initial project consisted of the transformation of the photographic documentation of floral/mineral models of theatre/opera sets from the end of the 19th century into a GIF-based DIY holographic apparatus where this historical – decorative and peripheral at that time – representation of the vegetal was regenerated by taking up the center of the stage.
Reacclimatizations III has been supported in part by the Mustarinda Society, a private not-for-profit organization, and Plontutid/Kasviaika festival.
