Zheng Bo: ‘Bamboo as Method’

This year, Somerset House has transformed its neoclassical courtyard into a garden made of bamboo, which you can enjoy for free. The immersive 'Bamboo as Method' installation is a new large-scale commission from Hong Kong-based artist Zheng Bo.  Find over 300 locally sourced bamboo and take a moment to disconnect from the fast-paced, hyper-connected lives and immerse yourself in the enchanting biosphere.

The completed drawings become a fertiliser for the garden, thus completing a loop of creativity and ecology. This way, you can enjoy moments of peace, away from the bustle of the city and contribute your bit to a sustainable environment!
