SCAPE Public Art
Based on the act of giving and the positive symbolism of light, Mischa Kuball’s Solidarity Grid was commissioned by the Christchurch City Council and project produced by SCAPE Public Art. Over a period of three years, starting with SCAPE 7 in 2013, a single streetlamp from 21 cities around the globe was gifted to Christchurch as a gesture of solidarity with the city during its recovery and rebuild process. These engaging and dynamic streetlamps have been installed along Park Terrace opposite Hagley Park, between Armagh and Peterborough Streets, to provide a physical, as well as symbolic, exploratory trail of light for pedestrians and cyclists.
