At the Serpentine, a Show of Nature’s Healing Power

Ginsberg also focuses on plants, but in a very different way.her contribution “Pollinator Passmaker” An 820-foot-long flower bed planted not to please humans, but to benefit pollinators, many of which are endangered by bees and insects. “A lot of my job is to shift perspectives,” she said. Located near her formal 19th-century Italian garden and a 10-minute walk from the rest of her galleries in North Her garden, you’ll have to observe the plants from a pollinator’s perspective.

“Pollinators see it differently,” she explained. “The senses are different. For example, bees can’t see red, but they can see ultraviolet. Butterflies can see red, green, blue, and ultraviolet. You can optimize the fastest route through the flowers, or visit 10,000 flowers in a day, so what would your garden look like if you didn’t do it in a tasteful way? I’m starting to wonder.”

The answer is, “very dense, intensively flowering all year round, very colorful and full of strange combinations of plants.” But designing such a garden is complicated. Ginsberg partnered with Polish string theory physicist Přemek his Wytěczyk to create an algorithm to help figure out what to plant.on the website pollinator.artyou can also use this algorithm to get directions specific to your garden.

If the “pollinator pathmaker” is, as Ginsberg puts it, “an elegant way of thinking” about the problem of extinction, carolina cased‘s “This Land is a Poem of Ten Rivers Healing” is more confrontational. Born in London, raised in Columbia, and now living in Los Angeles, Cased has been documenting the scars left by the dam for years. In The Serpentine, he uses aerial and satellite photography to document the fate of his ten rivers in North and South America in an immersive, floor-to-ceiling wall. One section chronicles his Brumadinho dam collapse in 2019. Waste from an iron ore mine in Brazil has buried more than 250 of his people alive in an avalanche of toxic sludge. The other is in response to the construction of a large hydroelectric dam that floods part of the Magdalena River, the economic, social and cultural center of Colombia. “I always say the river called me,” said Cased, who grew up on a farm near the riverbank.
