Come and join when the art project Gelænderværk together with children and adults creates a 21 meter temporarily handrail on the square in front of SMK – Statens Museum for Kunst. The workshop is targeted at children aged 4-12 years – and their adults. The work will be completed during the day, so we create, feel and experience that moment together.
The art group behind the project will set up a 21m long clay mold, which will be processed by children and parents with a number of tools brought by the group.The work is created, felt, and experienced in the moment. The mold is processed by children and parents with tools provided by the group. This work is cast and exhibited on site.
Through an open, engaging, and exploratory process, we will create a gesamtkunstwerk as a tribute to the hand, craft, and textuality. We want to democratize the artistic process, celebrate communal creation, and the fact that we are allowed to be together again.
