"Project Light is an immersive and intergenerational project in collaboration with early years children, their families and artist Natalie Zervou at Parasol Unit, with the aim to generate meaningful experiences through art and process via playful experimentation with light and shadow. Inspired by the water that features in Elgar Esser’s photographic landscapes, families will be invited to explore this theme further making direct connections to the exhibition".
We built a community! It may have looked post apocalyptic but it was brilliant. Thanks to all who came and contributed.
Yesterday we looked at natural forms and constructed these around our bodies. We became human, moving, living coral, shells, fossils, seaweed etc. I've never seen a group immerse themselves into something so fast, such infectious enthusiasm.
I could say so much about the power of embodiment for young children when experiencing art, their senses are SO receptive and they are really able to 'live' what they view.
I am delighted to be working with The Parasol Unit curating a series of workshops for Under 5s and their carers. The next sessions on 22nd and 29th November will be based on the Robert Therrien exhibition. Images below are from the last session.
