‘domestic ponds’ by duende studio with mathieu lehanneur, benjamin graindorge and eric jourdan galerie BSL, paris on now until november 27th, 2010

 

 

 

duende studio is proposing ‘domestic ponds’, an exhibition which features the pond as a domestic water point. three new designs by mathieur lehanneur, benjamin graindorge and eric jourdan which explore this theme are being presented.

‘a liquid hollow, a matrix swarming with life, the pond is a true open air breeding spot, the antithesis of avase or an aquarium. the water, overflowing with nutrients, drawn from the bottom of the garden, irrigates as well as fertilizes the vegetable garden.’ – anthony van den bossche, duende studio

this practice is pushed to its limit with aquaponic agriculture allowing the symbiosis of fish and plants. the plants are nourished by the fish water, full of nitrate-rich waste. the plants therefore play the role of natural filter by retaining the nitrates and assist in maintaining balanced water for the fish.

over the past two years, duende studio has been working on developing an adaptation of the principle of aquaponics into the domestic world, with two prototypes produced with mathieur lehanneur  (‘local river’, 2008) and benjamin graindorge (‘floating garden’, 2009).

today, the research and experimentation process has been taken even further, with a three piece limited edition series presented and edited by galerie BSL. these three new projects whose function requires minimal maintenance by the user, impose a plastic interpretation of the pond as a new domestic typology – a metaphoric ecosystem of our way of living that is a closed world whose primary problem is the management of its own waste – in which the series ‘domestic ponds’ brings a response.
