Dreams can take you to wondrous places. They motivate you to find and express yourself, and give you the courage to become greater. Go on a journey inspired by a Singaporean artist – A BIG DREAMER – Whose story exemplifies the power of the mind and art to create infinite possibilities.
Every year the festival is inspired by an artist. This year’s Big Dreamer is Singaporean artist Lee Wen. He is a performance artist who uses his body, rather than painting or scuplting to tell stories.
We went there and the kids loved it. Right from the start they were full on as they were actually allowed to make as much noise as they could with different kitchen items an discover their sounds.
In total 5 artists and art collectives contributed to this nice festival. If you have the time take you kid to the festival en let them explore the interactive installations en simultaniously educate them in different forms of art.
The highlights for us were the interactive installation in the beginning where you can make your own interactive figure, the evolution of firework and Hands On from We make Carpets.
Create works of art using pool noodles, velcro and other household items. You will never see everyday objects in the same way again!
Hands On is based on an exhibition first commissioned by National Gallery Victoria (NGV), Melbourne and developed in colaboration with We Make Carpets in 2017–18
