22nd SERPENTINE PAVILION 2023 À TABLE DESIGNED BY LINA GHOTMEH — ARCHITECTURE
Serpentine is delighted to open the 22nd Pavilion, designed by French-Lebanese Paris-based architect Lina Ghotmeh, at Serpentine South on Friday 9 June 2023 with Goldman Sachs supporting the annual project for the 9th consecutive year.
9th June – 29th October 2023
Inspired by the architect’s Mediterranean heritage and fervent discussions around the table over current affairs, politics, personal lives, and dreams, the Pavilion is titled À table – a French call to sit down together at a table to engage and participate in dialogue while sharing a meal. As such, the interior of the Pavilion features a concentric table along the perimeter, inviting us to convene, sit down, think, share and celebrate exchanges that enable new relationships to form.
Considering food as an expression of care, the Pavilion’s design is a space for grounding and reflection on our relationship to land, nature and environment. By offering a moment of conviviality around a table, Ghotmeh welcomes us to share the ideas, concerns, joys, dissatisfactions, responsibilities, traditions, cultural memories, and histories that bring us together.
