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."
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.
