Crack'd for Christchurch
Crack'd for Christchurch is an organisation created by a group of Christchurch residents after the 2010 and 2011 Canterbury earthquakes. After the earthquakes, Crack'd for Christchurch collected pieces of broken china from hundreds of homes in Canterbury and used them to create mosaic artworks for the city. Their most famous artwork took the form of a chair and ottoman (dubbed Flora and Otto) which were gifted back to Christchurch as a memorial for the city's lost history and a celebration of the rebuild.
This collection holds photographs outlining the gathering, preparation, and sorting of the china, and the construction of the artworks. It also contains background documents such as plans for the artworks, a poster of the launch, and an early logo.
