We ran a session for the Summer in The City programme at the gallery which is aimed at 11 – 16 year olds.
Our inspiration was taken from the work of Pascale Marthine Tayou currently on display at the gallery.
“The World Falls Apart, Tayou’s new work created for this exhibition and shown at the Whitworth, is an interior forest that spills out into the neighbouring park. Taking inspiration from one of the most widely-read novels in African literature, Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achibe, Tayou’s installation is a “cultural traffic jam”
I wanted to encourage the participants to focus on the geometric sculptural shapes in this piece and how they are juxtaposed with the trees in the park.
This exploration is reflected in the prints we made onto bags
