Intelligence Abraham Cruzvillegas: Empty Lot, Turbine Hall, Tate Modern

The Mexican conceptual artist Abraham Cruzvillegas has created a series of allotments inside Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall. Uninspiringly titled ‘Empty Lot’ this installation makes an impressive structure made entirely from found materials - a trait of Cruzvillegas’ work. These two huge grids of perfectly formed, triangular wooden planters are filled with a mixture of compost and soil from parks, heaths, commons, green spaces and gardens across London. However nothing has been planted in the soil. The hope is for visitors to throw in seeds, one visitor has even thrown in their apple core. For Cruzvilleges, the project is about feelings of hope and expectation, as much as it is about whatever may or may not happen over the next six months of the installation.
