大館當代美術館 Tai Kwun Contemporary
What does the magic of our world look like through children’s eyes? How can parents avoid being judgmental and offering too much guidance so that they can explore imagination with their children? Artist-mother-and-teacher Wendy Tai has designed a workshop to observe and discuss how Pipilotti Rist uses light and colour in her work to express diverse subject matter. She also invites parents and children to reconnect their senses with their surroundings by creating cycle wheels.
The artist-led workshop is a collaboration between Tai Kwun Contemporary and Rooftop Institute for Family Day at Tai Kwun Contemporary, inspired by Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist’s artwork. Parents and children are encouraged to explore the body and moving images with activities that invigorate our senses and let us experience the world in a different way.
