The Christchurch art gallery.
This sculpture is over the stairs at the Christchurch Art Gallery. It is title ‘Bebop’ and is by artist Bill Culbert. You can learn more about the artist and the origins of the sculpture at the art gallery website https://christchurchartgallery.org.nz/collection/2014-035. The chairs were found at flea markets in the south of France.
The large neon sign on the side of the Christchurch Art Gallery is by British artist Martin Creed.
This sculpture is called ‘Quasi’ and is by artist Ronnie van Hout. It’s situated on the roof of the Christchurch Art Gallery and is 5 metres tall. It’s a temporary installation – remaining there until the end of next year apparently.
Closed for five years due to our earthquakes, the Christchurch Art Gallery re-opened today. It’s so good to have our public art gallery open – it was a place I often went to and it was great to see some of my favourite artworks hanging on the walls.
