Giardini presents haunting, desolate images of both the man-made and natural environments. The images, stills from McQueen’s 2009 Venice Biennale film installation “Giardini”show the viewer the effects of man on his surroundings, but without ever showing man himself. The effect is both to implicate the reader in what he is witnessing in these scenes and also to distance him from their reality.; Published in conjunction with the exhibition of the same title, at the British Pavilion, 53rd Venice Biennale, June 7-Nov. 22, 2009.; Includesessay by T.J.
