Leisure: Conversations with Magic Forms

Sand is piled against a V-shaped plinth on a gallery floor. Lining the top of the plinth are small colourful sculptures. Behind a large black & white vinyl print of a photo collage hangs on the wall.

On select Saturday afternoons throughout the exhibition season, participants are invited to drop in to activate artist duo Leisure’s installation, Conversations with Magic Forms. Using plaster and other materials provided, children and visitors will make cast objects in sand, exploring the relationship between negative and positive space. Children are encouraged to create as active participants in the work, both through their making and, if they choose to leave their objects on the artwork plinths, as exhibiting artists.

These activities are free and open to participants of all ages. Drop in anytime between 12pm and 3pm. Children are encouraged to participate.

All materials are provided. No experience is necessary.
