The re-activation of an industrial warehouse as part of Adelaide’s burgeoning arts scene has resulted in this dynamic installation, a three-dimensional drawing. Leanne Amodeo reports.
Sam Songailo intended to invest his installation with a sense of reflection and calm, and he succeeds. But any suggestion Zen Garden is solely concerned with nature and meditation is inaccurate. There’s an inherent grittiness in Songailo’s line work; it acts as a reminder that this space is actually anything but a Zen garden.
