Dotted around Tracey Rose’s show Shooting Down Babylon is a series of curious sculptures that are round in shape and constructed using unconventional materials.
These pieces are collectively referred to as Mandela Balls and form part of an ongoing project to produce 95 balls that represent the age Nelson Mandela was when he died. The series seeks to unpack disappointment felt around the disintegration of the ideals of the new South Africa.
In this month’s Family Learning Workshop with the Centre for Art Education, children and their parents/guardians will make their own Mandela balls.
Materials and equipment will be provided along with a snack break.
Run by Amy Cornfield, the Family Learning Workshops enable parents/guardians and children to share a creative experience and learn and develop their engagement with art together.
