15/10/2011 - 16/10/2011

The Serpentine Gallery Garden Marathon (London) 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.

The event is directly inspired by the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2011, designed by Peter Zumthor. The encounter of architecture and garden creates a contemplative space that is both set within – and meditatively separated from – the wider surroundings of Kensington Gardens.


Participations will range from the fields of horticulture, design and architecture to explore the creation of gardens and their spatial, urban and scientific importance, through to works by artists and readings by poets and writers exploring the significance of the garden in our experience of the world.

Participants include:
Etel Adnan, Maria Thereza Alves, Rosie Atkins, Gianfranco Baruchello, Yto Barrada, Gerry Bibby, Stefano Boeri, Andrea Branzi, John Brockman, Pablo Bronstein, Hélène Cixous, Gilles Clément, Pascal Cribier, Adam Curtis, Elizabeth Diller, Jimmie Durham, Marcus du Sautoy, Patrick Eyres, Hans-Peter Feldmann, FIELDCLUB, Sophie Fiennes, Jef Geys, Adriaan Geuze, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Dan Graham, Rodney Graham, Fritz Haeg with Denise Withers, Zarina Hashmi, Will Holder, Jennifer Jacquet, Charles Jencks, Koo Jeong-A, Alison Knowles, Pablo León de la Barra, Jonas Mekas and David Ellis, Catherine Mosbach, muf architecture/art, Silke Otto-Knapp, Philippe Parreno, Dan Pearson, Giuseppe Penone, Christian Philipp Müller, Alice Rawsthorn, Carissa Rodriguez and Avena Gallagher, David Rowan, Peter Saville and Anna Blessmann, Rüdiger Schöttle, Richard Sennett, Bas Smets, Paul Smith, Something & Son, Susan Stenger, Corin Sworn, Wolfgang Tillmans, Mierle Laderman Ukeles, Sophie von Cundale, Alex Waterman and Andrea Zanzotto.
