Art to feed the senses, until Sep 18

Kew’s wild botanic garden is premiering five major outdoor installations this summer. Each one responds to a Kew Science research project that explores the future of plants and food in communities across the world. Among the highlights is a 24ft-high sculpture suspended across Wakehurst’s Westwood Valley that rises and falls in response to rainfall; Flea Folly Architects’ The False Banana Pavilion, and 3D interactive sculptures inspired by mycelial networks. What’s more, there is a unique opportunity to experience the gardens at sunset, complete with live performance and outdoor dining.
