Homage to the Lost Spaces
Material relating to a Transitional Cities project, titled 'Homage to the Lost Spaces'. The project description reads, "Entitled Homage to the Lost Spaces (Government Life Building Studios), Hewson's series of photographic installations references the artistic community of pre-earthquake Christchurch who lost studios and seeks to draw attention to and pay final respects to the beauty contributed by many of the city's old buildings. Cranmer Courts was critically damaged during the February 22nd quake; the subsequent emergency repair work to secure the building left large areas, including window and door frames, boarded up with plywood. These void spaces were used as the 'canvas' for Hewson's installations, resulting in the images being neatly framed by the damaged stonework".
