Ghostcat - The Ministry

Mixed media including neon light with battery pack, 295(h) x 135(w) x 50mm(d)

This work is an open edition. Each piece is indivually handcrafted and may vary slightly.

About the Artwork: The Ministry was a nightclub in central Christchurch that was damaged by the 2010/2011 earthquakes and was subsequently demolished. This nightclub was a foundation to the local electronic music scene and was a staple, or some say 'church' of many music lovers lives. Through this miniature recreation, we can imagine the music and bass pumping through the walls as the actual lime green neon light glows (battery pack included in the rear of this artwork). Set this light to strobe, and imagine The Ministry once again full of life, music, and large nights of life-changing good times. Pre-earthquake at 90 Lichfield St, Christchurch.

About the Artist: Mike Beer aka Ghostcat is a Christchurch-based artist creating ‘scratch-build’ miniature objects, buildings, and city fixtures. With a background in carpentry and set design/building at the Court Theatre, Ghostcat has recently taken the leap to focus solely on his passion - making mini things - and the results are absolutely fascinating. The craftsmanship and attention to detail are what sets Ghostcat apart.

Ghostcat's inaugural exhibition at Fiksate, Shadow Town, explores the overlooked, forgotten and often grimy side of our city…. in miniature form, scratch-built to every minute detail.
