The big aim is to organise a real exhibition in the Languages corridor on the second floor of the Primary school that will go ‘live’ in the course of next week. Watch that space!
In preparation for our exhibition we researched various artists, most Belgian or Dutch, we made our own ‘Mondriaans’ and ‘Magrittes’, we wrote fantasy stories that go with famous art pieces and we have created ‘Dod Poems’ inspired by the famous picture book ‘The Dod’ by Peter H. Reynolds.
To see what a real exhibition looks like and to be able to put in all into practice, we were lucky enough to get invited to the show of Dutch artist, Peter Riezebos, last Tuesday, whose show ‘Chinese Artifacts’ is currently running at the Duolun Museum of Modern Art in Hongkou District. Peter Riezebos is a rising star in China and his work is hugely popular amongst connoisseurs. He told us about his work and the things in life that inspire him. Together with the students he created a true piece of modern art.
Feel free to come and see our work!
