185 Empty Chairs

At the edge of the parking lot directly across from the cathedral is what was originally describes as a temporary art installation. It has been there for 6 years. It "reflects on the loss of lives, livelihood and living in our city following the earthquake of 22nd February 2011."
Artist's Statement:
185 square meters of grass depicting new growth, regeneration.
185 white chairs, all painted twice by hand as an auto of remembrance.
This installation is temporary - as is life.
