ALICE’S FUSION TEA GARDEN

BY TOYOKO SHIMADA

A multi/mixed media installation, cross cultural tea ceremonies and workshops

Exhibition :

Saturday 13 & Sunday 14 June 2009 12 : 00 – 18 : 00 hours

Scheltema Marktsteeg 1, Leiden

Participation in “Land of the rising sense, Kunstfestival” organized by Scheltema www.scheltemacomplex.nl


A Japanese Alice invites you to her “ WONDER GARDEN “ –a ‘new’ nature created with a mixture of nature, technique and elements from diverse cultures. Tea ceremonies from different countries, in which you can participate, will open the gate to the wonder garden.

This is a new wonder garden in a high-tech and ecological period at the dawn of the 21st century.


The concept of a garden is a place where nature and culture encounter and cross over each other….dialogue of nature and human activities. Moreover it is a place where all sorts of plants come together from different origins to grow next to each other with various identities and create a whole colorful oneness!

What a beautiful metaphor for an ideal integration essentially, which we can dream of for our today’s planet Earth!

The central theme is the rose, inspired by the story of ‘Le Petit Prince’ from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and his ‘unique’ rose, symbolizing love, attention and care with respect and acceptance, which are true needs for all of us to live on individually, socially and culturally especially in such a critical period of our time.

In this multi/mixed media installation in a form of WONDER GARDEN, the rose appears in all sorts of manifestations to prickle senses, such as touchable natural as well as artificial forms, lighting objects, video-projection, collage of international news papers and so on.


As a person and as an artist living in 2 cultures, Toyoko brings over the essence and symbolism of ‘Le Petit Prins’, a philosophical and heartwarming masterpiece of Antoine de St. Euxpéry to a contemporary context in our complex multicultural globalizing society.


Tea ceremonies from diverse cultures, in which you can participate, will open the gate to the wonder garden.

Experience in the high-tech tea house how a daily matter-routine like drinking tea can lead to a deeper spirituality.

The cross cultural tea ceremonies from different countries invite to communicate in a wonder garden, where care, attention and love are driving forces. Art is communication. In this sense art and food are closely connected to each other. Both have something to do with taste and prickling senses.

Art is food for the mind.


Tea ceremonies have so much to do with the social structure, philosophy, nature, senses and history in the cultures with long historical backgrounds. Daily drinking tea is a communication with oneself as well as with the others. It is so simple and at the same time immensely complex, so is art, so is life. All wise Zen-masters do understand this magical truth that simplicity is in another word complexity.


Alice’s fusion tea garden is an interactive/intercultural/interdisciplinary art project.

This exhibition in Scheltema is a try-out short-period presentation. It is planned to expand to many more locations through the Netherland. So follow us!
