The Sunday Spot: LYDIA CS (KALEIDOWORKS)
SUN 5, 12, 19, 26 MAR, 2 APR 2017, 2-4PM, CLORE STUDIO, FREE
For the Sunday Spot sessions in March and early April, join artist duo Kaleidoworks to explore sound and film.
In March, Lydia CS (Kaleidoworks) invites children and families to create and capture tones and tempos echoing around the Clore Studio. From creating sound-effects in the dark to bottling the soundscapes outside - we'll be finding foley everywhere! Sound equipment and video cameras will be on hand for you to document noises made from unexpected orchestras. Come and take part to make yourself heard!
For a one off Sunday Spot on the 2nd of April, Betsy Dadd (Kaleidoworks) invites children and families to create experimental footage in the SLG's new garden and play with different ways to project. Together we will play with beaming light and imagery on to different materials, surfaces and scales - creating immersive film and shadow installations in the Clore Studio.
All sessions are inclusive, for more information on access to the gallery please read here.
Please note that you don't have to attend all sessions to take part. The Sunday Spot is an ongoing series of free, drop-in family activities which takes place every Sunday from 2-4pm, suitable for children aged 3-12 years.
KALEIDOWORKS is an artist duo made up of Betsy Dadd and Lydia CS. Their work takes form as moving image - which traverses drawing, film, photography, sequence, sound, rhythm, time, editing, movement, projection and spatial installation - in infinite combinations - using these mediums as a barometer to trace time and document places undergoing change.
Participation is an integral part of their practice. Various projects have explored play - working closely with Assemble at Baltic Street Adventure Playground to make The Playground in the City (2015), as well as filming various international play spaces resulting in The Voice of Children (2016) installed at the Aresenale, Venice Architecture Biennial and The Baltic Centre of Contemporary Art, Newcastle (2016). The findings of these documentary research projects have fed into their art practice, engagement approach and ideas around child-led learning.
They have exhibited and screened work in London, Lisbon, Venice, Edinburgh, St Petersburg and Beijing. Devised engagement projects at the South London Gallery, V&A, RCA, Serpentine, Counterpoints Arts and completed residencies in India and Aida Refugee Camp, Palestine.
