How are you, people? I hope you’re having a hooping Sunday. To round up this series, here is more art from the botanical garden in the south of Tuscany last summer.
After two poems in April, inspired by this visit, last week we started our stroll through this exhibition called ENDGAME (after Samuel Beckett’s play) in the botanical garden Corsini in Porto Ercole, and today we round it up.
Last August I was happy to come across an article about this exhibition by chance (Facebook algorithm really knows me by now), or I’d never guess it was about 20 minutes from me. I didn’t even know of the existence of this botanical garden.
It was a hot day so my visiting uncle and I chose the 7 p.m. slot, even though the light for photographs was slowly going. There was an entrance fee but not too high.
Art was various, unlikely and beautiful, and what seemed joyful from afar often proved a little gloomy from closer. This is how it went.
Oh, in Luka news: It’s no fun to get up at 3 a.m. twice in three days only to see your team lose. The Mavs lost twice in a row on the road in the Western Conference final against Golden State Warriors, even though in the second game Luka scored 42 points and they dominated in the first half. And then… in the second half it was like they turned themselves off. On purpose? We shall see. Tonight 3 a.m. again. After all, they can now equalise in two home games, and then they need to win just two more…
In this series, from the ENDGAME exhibition in Orto botanico Corsini, Porto Ercole, August 2021:
