Self Assembly With Simon Spain

Self Assembly, Simon Spain

Join artist Simon Spain and contribute to a community of figures by crafting a representation of yourself

Self assembly invites participants to make a stick figure, a representation of themselves, from fallen branches by assembling limbs, torso and head together with plaster bandages and then to create a community of figures with other participants. This is a collaborative creative encounter as you own figure cannot stand alone and needs to be attached to another. Together the figures will create a community that celebrates difference.
