Titled “Inspiring Questions—Questioning Inspiration,” this year’s ICC Kids Program focuses on the way children find their own inspirations and questions. The exhibition invites children to experience various displays while thinking and imagining how artists generate from their unique points of view instances of “!” and “?.”
On display are a variety of artworks based on such everyday items as toy railway tracks, knitting, clapping, pixel art, animation, shadows or pinhole cameras, highlighting slightly off-beat perspectives that evoke in the viewer both “inspiration” and “questions.”
The exhibition was designed with the aim to make visitors aware of possible alternative views and perspectives by way of exchanging the personal “inspirations” and “questions” generated in each viewer’s mind.
Welcome to a show of artworks that let you discover your own “inspirations” and “questions” by designing patterns out of toy railway tracks, finding things wrapped up in knitting yarn, painting pictures using a device that lights up when clapping, creating and deciphering animated pixel images, drawing up stories inspired by moving characters on the wall, viewing the exhibition space from a giant’s perspective, or wearing a box on your head to see things upside down!
