Ghostcat - Stairs to Nowhere

Mixed media, 270(h) x 355(w) x 400mm(d)

About the Artwork: This staircase in downtown Christchurch really is a staircase to nowhere that remained standing by itself after the rest of the building had been demolished, following the earthquakes. Jacob Yikes and others have used it as their canvas. Every individual floor tile has been painstakingly replicated as it is on the original. Hereford 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.
