The visual artist Ebony G. Patterson is creating a new site-specific installation for the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx, the garden announced on Tuesday.
And she hopes it will prompt visitors to think about what lies beneath the sprawling 250 acres of plants, waterfalls, rolling hills and ponds. “A garden is an embellishment on the landscape,” said Patterson, 41. “What happens when you begin to peel back the landscape and look not just between or beneath the plants but also in the soil?”
