Introduction

Every year, Storefront Manitoba holds its annual Cool Gardens Competition, which draws entries from around the world. The competition asked for participants to create a land art installation that provides a cooling effect for Winnipeggers during the summertime. Storefront selected Nadi’s Shovel Garden as the 2018 winner.

Project Summary

Shovel Garden consists of over 100 snow shovels that we painted white to juxtapose against the garden’s vibrant summer surroundings. We believe the monochromatic snow shovels act as an iconic reflection of winter, providing a chillingly cheeky reminder to Winnipeggers of the first snowfall in October to the gloomy temperatures that rival (and exceed) the planet Mars. We positioned the shovels, using anchors, in a one-by-one meter grid, covering the garden bed in front of the old St. Boniface City Hall to hauntingly stand like soldiers waiting for the first snowfall.

Our Role

Our role in the project’s creation and installation was extensive. We created the design concept, painted the snow shovels and installed the shovels in the old St. Boniface’s City Hall garden beds.
