We miss you magic land!, 2011
Gallery of Modern Art/ Children’s Art Centre
Curated by Kate Ryan
For GOMA Turns 5 celebrations, the Children's Art Centre invites children and families to experience and wonder at the large-scale installation We miss you magic land! by Pip & Pop. Adopting the expression 'more is more', Pip & Pop transforms hundreds of objects and craft materials into beautiful, glittery worlds for We miss you magic land!. Using cake decorating tools, they funnel rainbow-coloured sugar crystals, fine sands and glitter to create lacy patterned hilltops and valleys, dotting them with artificial flowers, plastic trinkets, crystals and sequins. The finished result is a series of delightful magical worlds where make-believe becomes a part of reality.
