SCAPE Artwork The Lambs Book of Life snow damaged


SCAPE Artwork The Lambs Book of Life snow damaged

The heavy snowfall in Christchurch has damaged one of the SCAPE artworks, The Lambs Book of Life (Folder Wall).

The artwork is attached to the western side of Christchurch City Council Civic Offices in the central city.

More than 100 millimeters deep snow built up on the mesh drops of the printed artwork panels, and combined with heavy winds, damaged three of the six panels.

Art & Industry Biennial Trust & SCAPE director Deborah McCormick says the damage was done by highly unusual weather circumstances but it will be quickly repaired.

³This is a minor set-back and one of many things damaged by snow,² she says. ³Fortunately, the Hawkins team working with us on the artwork has arranged for reprinting and will have the damaged panels up as soon as possible for everyone to enjoy again.²

³The three undamaged panels have been rolled up and secured to prevent further damage from any other heavy weather which might come our way.²

The artwork is a 29m x 29m printed mesh and was unveiled a week ago, when SCAPE received huge congratulations for their efforts to bring life back into the inner city through art activity.

The Lambs¹ Book of Life (Folder Wall) is both a painting and a sculpture on an enormous scale by Christchurch artist Darryn George. George¹s design is based on an internal view of a filing cabinet drawer, with the receding label tabs of suspended folders seen as a metaphor for the function of records and registers in Christian theology.
