Scoodoos at Hugh Lane, Dublin City Gallery, Dublin
Scoodoos will be appearing in the Hugh Lane Gallery Dublin during March and April 2015
A number of workshops with local primary schools will see the creation of new Scoodoos sculptures that will form an exhibition. These sculptures will then be moved to the grounds of the school and become part of an educational trail.
The exhibition starts on March 10th and is located in the area that was the bookshop. Itwill feature a number of elements.
Scoodoos Tree Notes
Utilizing he space of the old gift shop in the Hugh Lane Gallery, Scoodoos invite visitors to write a note of what trees mean to them, tell us about your favourite tree or draw a picture of a tree on a Scoodoos postcard. The postcards will then be displayed for everyone to see.
Twig Art Project
Using twigs and fine wire, twig art enables us to turn twigs into pieces of art. The first stage of the process involves making a twig and wire “rope”. Throughout the exhibition visitors are invited to make a piece of rope, as it lengthens it will snake around the room. Eventually it will be formed into a sculpture. There will also be a display of smaller twig art pieces. Many of the pieces on display will be made during a workshop with a local school.
