Video installation, food, performance, lots of oranges and juice
Orange juice is the ubiquitous morning drink of North America. Orange juice has the power to turn B&W video to color, make the sun rise, and spare a person from drinking calcium-rich cocktails of pureed sardines, turnips and other cruciferous vegetables. Employing relational art strategies as portals to civic engagement, Agent Orangerie explores our collective unexamined relationship towards orange juice, inviting people to play with the materiality of what constitutes commercial orange juice as a metaphor for the dislocation between our received notion of an agriculture based on place and season rather than protocols and processes of factory farming.
