SERPENTINE GALLERY & PAVILION ’11

Michaelangelo Pistolleto created a maze-like structure (in The Mirror of Judgement) in the gallery with swirling cardboard, which surrounds or encases (depends on how you look at it) mirrored artworks.

This year, Peter Zumthor designed a slightly different space (from the previous ones). Using plants, the architect managed to create a place that is tranquil, organic and beautiful, which, in a way, is like an extension of the park or something that already belongs to the park (Kensington Gardens).
