Place in time

The Christchurch Documentary Project

Contents

The Winter Garden

  • Christine McFetridge

Examining relationships with immediate family, close friends and the natural landscape, the Winter Garden negotiates the complexity in reconciling Christchurch as the place McFetridge grew up in and an earthquake affected city.

re-Build

  • Haruhiko Sameshima

In September of 2017, Haruhiko Sameshima undertook a short teaching and artist residency at the School of Fine Arts, producing a body of work about the rebuild of Christchurch's central business district.

Support Structures

  • Tim J. Veling

This small portfolio of photographs, made between odd jobs on the way to and from work, is a metaphorical tribute to the people that helped keep Tim Veling upright following the Christchurch earthquakes of 2010 and 2011.

(Re)Orientation

  • Tim J. Veling

(Re)Orientation is a work in progress and idiosyncratic guide to sites of significance to Christchurch’s post-earthquake narrative and the built and psychological landscapes that have come to define it.

Thx 4 the Memories

  • Tim J. Veling
  • Glenn Busch
  • Bridgit Anderson

As the devastating series of earthquakes that destroyed and subsequently closed off much of Christchurch city continued, residents in large areas of the badly affected eastern suburbs began for the first time to hear the words, Red Zone.

The Freeville Project

  • Tim J. Veling
  • David Cook

A collaborative project by David Cook, Tim J. Veling and the students and teachers of Freeville School, New Brighton, Christchurch. Freeville was scheduled for closure by the Ministry of Education following the 2010 and 2011 Christchurch earthquakes.

Adaptation

  • Tim J. Veling

An ongoing project documenting the sometimes surreal and often disorientating environment that is Christchurch’s post-earthquake central business district.

Returnal

  • Tim J. Veling

To revisit time and again. Days, months and years – a decade already. To study sites from multiple vantage points, ponder the changing light and respond to shifts in weather and seasons. A work in progress drawn from my unwieldily archive.

The Cardboard Cathedral

  • Bridgit Anderson

The Cardboard Cathedral project captured the imagination of many, nationally and internationally. The building slowly rose, put together step by step, tube by tube, day by day – the handwork of those who believed in the idea.

My Place

  • Tim J. Veling
  • Glenn Busch
  • Hanne Johnsen
  • Uiga Bashford
  • Bruce Connew
  • Maria Buhrkuhl
  • Dean Kozanic

Think about it: What's a place of significance to you? What makes one place more important to you than another? What's your connection with this place and what is it that continues to make it important in your life today?

Red Bus Diary

  • Tim J. Veling

Based on countless journeys made over a three year period on the Christchurch bus system, Red Bus Diary documents through insightful images and text a series of interactions and observations, both public and personal.

The 9th Year

  • Hanne Johnsen

A body of work documenting year nine students at five Christchurch secondary schools, Aranui High, Cashmere High, Christ's College, Hagley Community College and St Margaret's College.
