March 9th, 7 pm – 8:30 pm
TONIGHT, Sarah Bergmann will give an artist talk about nature in the human age, through the lens of pollen, the media used in Laib’s Pollen From Hazelnut. The above video shows the installation of Laib’s work at the Hirshhorn, but the Henry is currently editing their video of the installation, so check back for updates!
Bergmann’s Pollinator Pathway project is a plan to create a mile-long corridor of pollinator-friendly gardens in planting strips on Seattle’s Columbia Street between 12th and 29th avenues. Spanning one third of the city’s width, the project draws a line of plant life between two larger public green spaces, integrating ecological support into the urban grid. Part renegade park and part educational platform, the Pollinator Pathway bridges science, art, systems-thinking, urban planning and landscape design. Bergmann will share the project’s trajectory from her interest in the collapse of the honeybee to reimagining cities as conduits between farms and wilderness.
