Experience the heat of the tropical rainforest and the tranquility of the Alps. Feat soundscapes by Leslie Deere, Kaffe Matthews, and Riz Maslen.

Escape to different worlds this summer at Kew Gardens. Stroll from elegant East Asia to dramatic desert landscapes. This year’s festival features a variety of newly commissioned artworks. Also see sculptures by Cristina Ottonello, Owen Thomas & Ali Henham.


Artist Lerslie Deere tells us about her commission and work: 'The two landscapes the curator (Anne Lawlor) gave me to work with were rainforest and desert.


I've got a 12 channel installation running in the Palm House.  What an amazing space to work in.  I wanted to keep it fairly natural but immersive.  As you walk through the space you can hear lots of things going on at once. 


I've also made a soundscape for the desert area in the Princess of Wales Conservatory.  This area is themed around the Mexican Day of the Dead with sculptures by Cristina Ottonello.  I had to come back a second time to sound check this piece because David Attenborough was there filming for a new series shot in 3D. Kew is great.'
