This piece of original artwork comes ready to hang.
"When I got the invitation to contribute a piece for this show it was an obvious choice whose image and lyrics to work with. Ladi6 is an iconic New Zealand artist hailing from Christchurch who recorded her last album Automatic at Detroit's legendary Studio A. I asked her which song I should interpret and she said 'Slow Ride' which was produced by Jeedo and features Invincible. The Lyric of most significance was simply 'From Christchurch to Motown'. The initial writing for this song was done during a tour of Detroit in Jeedo's car with Invincible. Ladi observed the visual parallels between the two cities albeit from completely different causes.
"Christchurch suffered two major quakes, one in September 2010 and the second in February 2011 then a subsequent 11,000 after shocks. Most of the inner city was decimated, homes and businesses lost and there were 187 casualties. Despite being a natural disaster rather than a slow economic decline you can draw a lot of comparisons between the two cities especially with the reimagining and rebuilding that is occurring." - Askew
