new zealand artist mike hewson has created a series of large-scale mixed media installations entitled ‘home to the lost spaces’ in acknowledgement of the devastating earthquakes that affected his home town of christchurch in 2011. 

the ten images are plastered on various buildings around the city, providing a temporary and allegorical renovation for the collapsed structures, displaying scenes of complete and functioning spaces that was known prior to the magnitude 6.3 natural disaster in february. hewson uses establishments that have been destroyed and now listed for imminent demolition, giving the spaces ephemeral and symbolic recognition for the event.
