Today marks the start of this year’s Serpentine Marathon. Having evolved from ubercurator Hans Ulrich Obrist’s interviews, this year’s program takes on the garden:
The Serpentine Gallery Garden Marathon is the sixth in the Gallery’s acclaimed Marathon series. This two-day event is an exploration of the concept of the garden. A product of the creative encounter between the man-made and the natural, between order and disorder, the garden can offer productive metaphors for the interactions between human life and time, care, thought or space.
Invited guests include artists Dan Graham, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Wolfgang Tillmans and Fritz Haeg. The talks are set in the annual outdoor Serpentine Pavilion, which was designed this year by architect Peter Zumthor.
Meanwhile, in the Serpentine Gallery itself, visitors can catch the latest work by biennale-darling Anri Sala, including the site-specific Score (2011.)
