RAM Workshop: Memories of Time--A Creative Workshop for Mother’s Day
May 11, 2019 Saturday 10:30 - 12:00
Rockbund Art Museum (Shanghai 20 Huqiu Road, Huangpu District)
On the second floor of Tobias Rehberger’s exhibition is portrait vases series (1997-2019), an “exhibition within an exhibition,” in which a collection of more than 50 uniquely composed flower-adorned sculptures form a homage to artists and friends associated with the artist and reveal their aesthetic quirks. The same floor also displays sculptures of overlaying oval fiberglass named the mother series. It shows the mother image in the eyes of the artist and contains all the memories and emotions.
On the occasion of Mother’s Day in 2019, we invite all participating VIP members to look for items that bear love in life* and bring them to the workshop to share the stories behind. These items will later be applied to their own works of art creation. Everyone is encouraged to make a gift for his or her mother in the form of a handicraft containing their shared memories and emotions.
Materials provided by the workshop:
Lamps, aluminum paper, iron wires, soil, paper clips, pushpins, hot glue guns, tack-it, scissors, glues, rulers, pens, etc.
Participants can voluntarily bring following things:
*One item that is related to mother (size ≤ 15cm*15cm*15cm)
Several coat hangers, cloths and clothespins
