The Garden

The Orozco Garden at the South London Gallery (SLG) was created by internationally acclaimed Mexican artist Gabriel Orozco. The project had the support of 6a architects and of horticulturists at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. Orozco had never designed a garden before but successfully transformed an inaccessible paved area into a unique sculptural work. A geometry of intertwining circles, intricately outlined in brick-dimensioned York stone, subtly maps a series of discreet spaces or notional rooms. An important feature is a planted walkway providing direct access for residents of Sceaux Gardens housing estate, where the SLG has run art programmes for many years.
