Saturday Lab Kids Workshop: A Replicated World
Saturday, January 4 at 11 am
Inspired by “Jonathan Monk: Exhibit Model Six – The Tel Aviv Version”, currently on view at CCA Tel Aviv, the upcoming Saturday Lab Kids workshop will focus on contemporary art that uses photography and photographic collage techniques in order to create two-dimensional illusionary space.
First, we will visit the exhibition and see how, using a wallpaper covering to the center’s walls, the artist has created a two-dimensional photo installation that replicated an exhibition space, to which he added three-dimensional artworks and art objects that spread across the space. Together, we will explore the exhibition and ask questions about origin and copy, and the place the medium of photography, especially digital photography, takes in our experience of reality.
Then, we will move to the Shelter for Contemporary Art and view more works by artists that uses photography in order to create illusionary spaces. Finally, we will continue with hands-on activities, where the kids will build small models (maquettes) of an imaginary space by using collage techniques and photographic replicas, together with other materials.
