London’s iconic Serpentine Galleries will host Formafantasma Studio from 4 March to 17 May 2020. The Amsterdam-based, Italian design duo will combine design, contemporary art and scientific research to question the role of design in raising public awareness of environmental issues – and more specifically, issues arising from the production and exploitation of forests and timber. Bear in mind that the Serpentine Galleries are already running their General Ecology exploratory programme. Curated by Lucia Pietroiusti, this project is researching complexity, posthumanism, the environment and climate change, themes also dear to Hans Ulrich Olbrist, the Galleries’ artistic director.
