Memorial to an Ash Tree

Mary-Ann Santin

Memorial to an Ash Tree, 2015, is a much photographed work on the corner of Jerningham and Melbourne Street, North Adelaide.

The work is made of an old ash tree that was burned in the Adelaide Hills fires of 2014-2015. The re-purposed wood sits beside a living ash tree. People often sit on them and children play on the work.
