//In the Labyrinth of Imagination, There Lives...//

In the Labyrinth of Imagination, There Lives...

On 27 November 2011, the workshop for children entitled In the Labyrinth of Imagination, There Lives… took place. The journey to the world of fantasy and imagination started with a visit to the MOCAK Collection. In the exhibition space, children were set a number of tasks which appealed to their imagination.

While viewing the work of Krzysztof Penderecki, the participants arranged themselves into a ‘live stave’ and proceeded to ‘play’ the notes of their favourite songs by jumping up and down.

The next task was inspired by Janek Simon’s work ‘Clock’. The unconventional, 14-hour clock stimulated imagination. The children went on to produce their own clocks, which measured time in hearts, cats, ice-creams, flowers and other inventive time units.

When the task was completed, the participants discovered who lives in the Labyrinth of Imagination: ‘Art and Idea!’

The workshop continued with artistic activities in the MOCAK Café, where the challenge was to explain what abstract words mean. What is ‘history’, ‘memory’,’space’? How to paint air? Who is a grown-up? The kids answered these questions with answers that were as imaginative as they were  ingenious, and proceeded to present them in the form of artwork.

Dear grown-ups, take a short journey inside children’s imagination:

‘History is something that you see when you go for a walk’– Zosia
