THE ARTIST & ME – Family

THE ARTIST & ME – Family


This new cycle of cultural mediation activities, developed in collaboration with Sofia Kouloukouri*, places artists and their approaches at its heart.
For each exhibition of the Center, children are invited to meet different artists to discover with them the works exhibited and share their practices during a workshop.

“Permission to touch” creative workshop with Suzanne Boulet
Wednesday 22 September, 3.30-5 pm
4-7 years old, accompanied by an adult

What would we do if we had plane fruits, thistle, leather, clay, liquid latex, sand, cork, some copper wire, linen, lentils, and white tennis balls? We would of course make sculptures! But first, we would do something that is rarely allowed in art spaces… touch the artworks in the exhibition! It will be the pieces of visual artist Suzanne Boulet, who encourages us, in small groups, to observe her pieces in a tactile manner. Alone or in pairs, these objects tickle our senses. Let’s explore materials through touch!

*Sofia Kouloukouri is an artist and writer. With a background in film studies and art history she works as a script-coach with filmmakers and aspiring novelists and writes articles on contemporary art and cinema for cultural magazines in Athens and Geneva.

“Posters and manifestos” creative workshop with Sabrina Fernandez Casas
Wednesday 29 September, from 3.30-5 pm
8-12 years old

In this workshop with the artist Sabrina Fernández Casas, children will have the freedom to make their own protest poster in a small and independent workshop. They will be able to experiment with all stages of production: marbling paper with shaving foam, writing sentences with brushes and stencils, the drying process…. The aim is to explore the subversive power of posters and to play with their visibility by installing them in the Centre, in the courtyard, in the toilets and on the streets.

Sabrina Fernandez Casas is a member of the Macaco Press collective, active in self-publishing and performance.

 

“My talisman t-shirt” creative textile workshop with Marc Eicher
Wednesday 6 October, 3.30-5pm
4-7 years old, accompanied by an adult

The artist and fashion designer Marc Eicher is inspired by magical thinking and witchcraft to create original clothes. For this workshop, each participant should bring a t-shirt that will be customized in order to project positive and protective thoughts onto it. You will adopt the artist’s very own techniques: pyrography on fabric, cutting on double-sided iron-on and sewing with various recovered fabrics from her own collection.

During this workshop, the children will be assisted by their parents, but also by the artist and a mediator.
