Garden Marathon 2011


The Garden Marathon is a London based event supported by the Serpentine Gallery. This is the 6th weekend long event, representing 50 international artists. 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.
