The artists inside the greenhouses were inspired by the transformation of life and plants during quarantine, the interaction between plants and light, and ancient Roman Purging and Plague rites.
Anticipating the one year anniversary of Covid restrictions, the artists concentrated Greenhouses as an annual site of quarantine in itself to protect the plants from what would otherwise be winter sacrifices. The Month of February is historically closely tied to the and it’s name is derived from the Ancient Roman purification ritual called 𝙁𝙚𝙗𝙧𝙪𝙖𝙡𝙞𝙖, in which Rome was purified through prayers and by making offerings and sacrifices to the gods of the dead.
The Greenhouse Quarantines program was divided into three February Purging periods in order to concentrate on different approaches.
