Charlotte Bobichon responded to our open call for young artists around the city to take part in the Re:ACTIVATE Kids for the Season 2017. Charlotte chose whales as her subject because she knew that they migrated around the world and she migrated here too. The artwork relates to Kaikoura’s sperm whales which are so close to Ōtautahi- Christchurch. Charlotte wants us to look after the whales because they are so special to us.

RE:ACTIVATE Kids & Teen 2017 was open to all aspiring artists under 18 years of age to have their work produced by SCAPE. Designs were selected by a judging panel. Supporter of the arts and community projects lead sponsors, Lewis Bradford Consulting Engineers, have committed support for young people like Charlotte to realise their sculptural dreams through this new annual SCAPE Public Art programme.

At age 7, Charlotte Bobichon is already an accomplished artist with publicly-displayed work. The Somerfield School pupil is broadening the audience for children's art after having her 5 metre whale sculpture Having a whale of a time! installed in Hagley Park for the Season.

Charlotte was selected from an open call made in early June 2017 for young artists' unique designs to be submitted. The two winners' projects (junior and senior) were built and displayed in the park as part of SCAPE Season 2017.
