Create a nest with Chantal van Rijt (from 7 to 12 years old)

18.05.2024, 14:00 — 16:00 Workshop

Are you between 7 and 12 years old? Then join us on Saturday 18 May to go on an exploration through Kunsthal Extra City with Chantal van Rijt. Together we will search for materials to build a nest for little creatures.

Behind the scenes of Kunsthal Extra City, there are many corridors, cubicles, nooks and crannies. Here is where small creatures build their nests undisturbed. During HOUSE NEST, a co-creation project with Chantal, we will explore these spaces and reflect on the creatures we share our environment with. We will collect materials we come across; things that have accumulated over time in forgotten corners. With these, we will create our own version of a nest, which will be housed at Kunsthal Extra City and will temporarily be part of the exhibition 'Periphery'.

'Periphery' is a semi-permanent exhibition consisting of several creation commissions from Kunsthal Extra City. It is a slowly evolving project in which the art hall collaborates with artists to question, activate and explore its non-neutral location. The site-specific artworks are given a place in side aisles, forgotten back rooms, tucked-in interstices and on the balcony, where they can blossom in privacy. The work created during HOUSE NEST will converse with the works on display here.
