What’s growing in Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall?

Hyundai Commission 2015:  Abraham Cruzvillegas: The inaugural Hyundai Commission for the Turbine Hall at London’s Tate Modern, is by Abraham Cruzvillegas, an artist known for creating sculptures by improvising with different materials.

Empty Lot is a large geometric sculpture created using scaffolding, a grid of triangular wooden planters, and soil collected from parks across London including Peckham, Haringey and Westminster. Nothing will be planted in the soil, but it will be lit by lamps and watered throughout the six month display. The unpredictable nature of the work, which may grow and change from one week to the next, provokes questions about the city and nature, as well as wider ideas of chance, change, and hope.
