Five Seasons: The Gardens of Piet Oudolf – Preview Screening - 7th June 2019
In association with Dartmouth Films and Taunton Film Society, Hestercombe presents a very special preview screening of a new film about designer and plantsman Piet Oudolf with introduction by Hestercombe’s Head Gardener, Claire Greenslade.
This fascinating new documentary immerses viewers in the work of designer and plantsman Piet Oudolf – who challenges conventional notions of nature, public space and beauty.
Journey through all four seasons in stunning gardens and locations around the world. Intimate discussions take place through all fours seasons in Piet’s own gardens at Hummelo, and on visits to his signature public works in New York, Chicago, and the Netherlands, as well as to the far-flung locations that inspire his genius, including desert wildflowers in West Texas and post-industrial forests in Pennsylvania.
The film also follows Oudolf as he designs and installs a major new garden at Hauser & Wirth Somerset, a gallery and arts centre in Southwest England, a garden he considers his best work yet.
£13 per person. Refreshments will be available. NB please note that this event is hosted at The Space, Monkton Heathfield, Taunton.
