SCAPE 2008 was the 5th Christchurch Biennial of Art in Public space. SCAPE 2008 brought over 25 artists from 15 countries to Christchurch with almost entirely new works. The exhibition spanned the central city, ventures into a nearby suburb and sees works located in the port of Lyttelton.

This catalogue republishes a series of critical texts that reinforce the curatorial theme. It also expands individual artists sections by consciously choosing to commission photography of the artworks in situ, presenting the process and visually tracking the production of the public’s interaction with the artworks.
