The Hole of Yellow Archipelago is a fun installation that opened this weekend at Auckland Art Gallery. The installation is a collaboration between artist Judy Darragh, Year 4 students at Balmoral Primary School and TurnSpace Collective from AUT University's Spatial Design Department.
Kids of all ages can enjoy this exhibition. When we went the kids got to draw on giant rolls of paper on the walls with the hanging crayons, slide down the carpeted hill, make sculptures with pool noodles to create the archipelago, an evolving landscape.
They also used the noodles to build sleighs to slide down the hill. They had fun climbing through the tunnels and hiding in them. Plus they happily played with the other kids while collaborating on what they could build with the noodles.
The only downside to the exhibition being so much fun is that your kids won't want to leave.
Location: Todd Foundation Creative Learning Centre on the mezzanine level of the
Auckland Art Gallery, Lorne Street, Auckland.
Showing: 5 September 2015 to 31 October 2016.
