On All Fours – Expressing Babyhood

Date: 
22.03.2019 to 25.08.2019

The exhibition is an experiential spatial installation designed particularly for infants and their families. Visitors can enter the exhibition on all fours through a baby door. In a video projected on the wall, babies can be seen moving and interacting with each other, and the patterns of their motions are paralleled by an sculptural installation on the floor. The sculptural pieces are like cushions, and the audience is free to crawl on and manipulate them. The pieces have lines on their surface that echo the movements of babies, and they also include components that produce sounds and feel different to the touch. The motions expressed by the lines are based on recorded movements of participants in the Experiential Colour Workshop for Babies.
