Serpentine South Gallery 30 Jun — 1 Jul 2018 Free

Artist Harold Offeh invited children and their families to think about themselves as sculptural material.

Responding to the materials, architecture and landscape of the Serpentine Galleries, families were invited to stack, repeat and move their bodies to create sculptural forms. This workshop was programmed in parallel with the Serpentine summer season featuring Christo and Jeanne-Claude: Barrels and The Mastaba 1958–2018 and Tomma Abts.

Offeh was the 2018–19 Serpentine Family Programme Artist in Residence and proposed to work with families to create Familial: Our Live Archive. Over the course of a year, Offeh invited artists to develop a series of workshops that brought together children and adults to explore media, technology, identity, architecture and public space. Working together and using performance, participants contributed to the formation of a live archive.
