The Serpentine Gallery Garden Marathon was the sixth in the Gallery's acclaimed Marathon series, exploring the concept of the garden.

Hélène Cixous (born 1937 in Oran, Algeria) is a writer, poet, philosopher, literary theorist and professor, and one of the most important voices in French feminist thought. In 1975, Cixous wrote The Laugh of the Medusa, which was a major influence on later post-structuralist feminist writing. Cixous is also the author of over fifty works of fiction and theatre, including A Real Garden (2010), Veils (with Jacques Derrida, 2001), So Close (2009), Hemlock (2011), and more than a dozen books of essays and critical texts, among which recently, Zero's Neighbour (on Samuel Beckett, 2010), Philippines (2011), The Portable Cixous (2010) and Volleys of Humanity: Essays 1974-2009 (2011).
