Elfi Spiewack


"According to the online dictionary for Princeton (n.d.), the word ‘fragment’ is defined as a piece broken off - or cut off -
from something else.
A fragment is simply a piece representing an incomplete whole due to the fact that the whole is missing...

- a missing cup or plate ..?
- a missing home ..?
- a missing city ..?

- a missing memory ..?"
Elfi Spiewack, Christchurch

As a response to the Christchurch earthquakes Elfi used the rubble and broken pieces she was surrounded with and added historic texts about the early years of Christchurch, the building of the Cathedral etc, to give them a new meaning or sense by putting them into a new context.
