Above are some photos of the exhibition I helped curate as part of my artist residency at Holland Park School. The title of the exhibition was 'Child's Play' - exploring childhood stories, themes and memories. My main aims for this show were for it to be fun, playful and something the students could relate to. You may have seen in previous posts some of the workshops I ran to create work towards it. Other things we worked on and included are listed below. On the opening night we also installed a maypole in the middle of the gallery which students danced around, inviting members of the audience to join in!
From the top: wall of storybook puppets / maypole / screen-printed alphabet bags / stuffed creepy crawlies / wooden toys / bugs in jars / inky illustrated characters / life-size wooden students (plus dog) / fluffy dream clouds & raindrops / wall of silhouette fairytales & stories.
I hope you enjoy looking at all the artwork. Sadly my residency ends this week, but it's been a great few months working with Holland Park's students and seeing the range of work they produced come together for the exhibition.
