Transform at Tate into a Super Sculpture - Tate Liverpool


THIS Easter, families are invited to visit Tate Liverpool and unleash their creative potential with Super Sculptures, a fun filled free workshop for the whole family.  

The free drop-in workshop will take place over the Easter holidays on:- Wednesday, 9 April; Saturday, 12 April, Wednesday, 16 April, Thursday, 17 April, Saturday, 19 April and Monday, 21 April 2014, between:- 13.30 to 16.30; within Tate Liverpool's family space Art Dock.

Using the works on display in DLA Piper Series - Constellations as inspiration, families can dive into the world of form and shape and transform themselves into a super sculpture.

Working with artist Kevin Hunt, families will explore the artworks in DLA Piper Series - Constellations to find interesting shapes, patterns and forms within these works. After finding inspiration from artists including Picasso, Matisse and Pollock, families will then go back to family space Art Dock and use a variety of everyday materials such as card, paper, fabric and foam to create their very own costume.

Once the costumes are ready and visitors have transformed into a super sculpture, they will return to the gallery to find the artworks that inspired their creative costumes. Families can then reflect on how an artwork feels and respond with a pose or performance to mimic their chosen artwork.

Debbie Goldsmith, Early Years and Families team, Tate Liverpool said:- "This hands on free Easter holiday activity is a fantastic opportunity for families to explore the gallery and respond to the artworks in a creative way. Super Sculptures is an activity which everyone can enjoy and have fun creating some amazing costumes."

DLA Piper Series - Constellations features more than one hundred works, many never seen before at Tate Liverpool and takes a fresh look at the links between artworks across time and location of origin. Constellations examines the role of nine 'trigger' artworks displayed within groups or 'constellations' of other artworks from many periods in art history. Highlights include Pablo Picasso's Bowl of Fruit, Violin and Bottle 1914, Marina Abramovic's Rhythm 0 1974 and The Inattentive Reader 1919 by Henri Matisse.
