KIA KAHA Frame
22nd February 2011 will be etched in the minds of Cantabrians forever…
At 12.51pm on a sunny Tuesday afternoon, the earth groaned and shook, Christchurch fell…
I grew up in Christchurch and lived there until a few years ago, it will always be home. I feel a deep connection to the city and, more so, having lived through the earthquakes.
This frame is a complete creation of and about the earthquakes.
- The rose window, which I created from scratch, represents the Christchurch Cathedral, the symbol of Christchurch – now in the process of being rebuilt.
- The frame is rimu which was salvaged from the Akaroa Hospital which was damaged in the earthquake.
- Frame is a deep frame which sits on a shelf, 18x18cm.
