A poignant tribute to the 185 people killed in the February 2011 earthquake has moved sites.

The 185 Empty Chairs art installation has been on the site of the Oxford Tce Baptist Church for eight months in remembrance of those who died in the quake.

Sitting on 185 square metres of ready-lawn, the white chairs symbolise those who lost their lives.

The individuality of each chair paid tribute to the uniqueness of each person represented, artist Pete Majendie said.

The work has been moved to the site of another quake-destroyed church - St Paul's Trinity Pacific Presbyterian Church on the corner of Madras and Cashel streets.

The installation has been shifted because of work required on the Oxford Tce site.
