The Serpentine Gallery Garden Marathon was the sixth in the Gallery's acclaimed Marathon series. This two-day event explored the concept of the garden.
'Take a setting, perform an action, and create a problem. Building on the tradition of the collage where existing materials are mixed and merged, Gerry Bibby likes to occupy and colonise an object, an image, or a place: he finds what it already contains, uses it for what it's worth, cuts up and diverts some of its key components, and extracts a new condition' (Anthony Huberman, October 2010). Recent solo projects include 5 Stages Liberation Project, The Artist's Institute, New York and STUDIOLO, Zurich. Recent performances include Untitled Making Room: Parallel Lines at MGK, Basel and Malmö Konsthall; and Myspace at Silberkuppe, Berlin.
