Rosetta Elkin in conversation with
June 6, 2013
Rosetta Sarah Elkin is principal of r.s.e-landscape, a design studio based in the Netherlands with a focus on vegetative strategies. r.s.e’s current projects are international in scope and include residential, commercial and installation-based design and consulting. Elkin is also the 2012-13 Daniel Urban Kiley Fellow and Lecturer in Landscape Architecture at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design.
From May 15-September 2, 2013, Elkin’s installation Tiny Taxonomy will be on view at the Gardner Museum. Tiny Taxonomy features mountain wildflowers and alpine perennials, common to rocky, high altitude environments, displayed in a field of reflective cylinders. These small tough plants invite close consideration. Elkin will present her recent work, including Tiny Taxonomy, followed by a conversation with Charles Waldheim, Ruettgers Consulting Curator of Landscape.
