Gap Filler Project 12: "I Seem to Have Temporarily Misplaced my Sense of Humour"
"I Seem to Have Temporarily Misplaced my Sense of Humour" is a mural painted by New Zealand artist Wayne Youle in a vacant lot on Colombo Street in Sydenham. The project was a collaboration between Gap Filler and The Christchurch Art Galley and the first artwork in the Gallery's Outer Spaces programme. Inspired by memories of his grandfather's workshop, Wayne designed a huge shadow board like those found in sheds and garages everywhere. The items of the board represent those who lent their tools and their hands after the earthquakes as well as the things that people lost.
