Let's go to the Clayground

Let's go to the Clayground

This activity has finished and is no longer running.

For this residency project, the Ledge Gallery is transformed into a playspace to workshop sculpture ideas for the clayground. Throughout the course of the project, the public will be able to engage with the clayground, visually and physically, as I invite the public to play, ask, imagine and sketch:

-What kind of playground do you enjoy?
-How do you play with others?
-How do you have fun?

Being raised in a Singaporean household with both English and Chinese (Mandarin), I often wonder how can play be expressed in either languages, and if I can create a collaborative language (that uses both) to celebrate play. Drawing inspiration from the both English alphabets and Chinese characters, I intend to create a collection of 13 objects (half of the total 26, which aims to complete the entire ‘play’ alphabet) at the end of the project.

At its conclusion, this series of explorations will not only be a material investigation of forms and scales, but it will also be an reaffirmation of the visceral potential of languages.
