Family Day

Family Day

Welcome to Family Day at Tai Kwun Contemporary!


Our family workshops foster interaction, communication, connection, and observation. In Piccinini’s world of fantastical creatures, parents and children are encouraged to explore the ways we imagine ourselves and to think about how humanity relates to nature.

This artist-led programme welcomes any child aged five or older to participate, accompanied by a parent/guardian.

This series of family workshops is presented by Tai Kwun Contemporary in collaboration with MUDWORK,Rooftop Institute and IV Chan.

Ways of Cuddling Workshop

  • Collaborating partner and artist: Rooftop Institute and IV Chan

Artist IV Chan believes that simple physical contact such as hugging can create positive energy. This workshop invites adults and children to explore the concepts of empathy, interdependence, and care in Patricia Piccinini’s hyperrealistic but surreal artworks. Through role play, adults and children gain a new understanding of the body and make extraordinary ‘one-minute sculptures’ with their bodies, props, and soft toys!

Body-Sprouting Workshop

  • Collaborating artist: MUDWORK

Humanity is inseparable from nature. Through her anthropomorphic sculptures, Patricia Piccinini explores the blurred boundaries between human beings and other animal species, and the boundaries between humans and nature. These artworks imagine life forms in unexpected ways and encourage us to envision a sustainable future beginning with birth. This artist-led workshop invites adults and children to mould a certain part of their bodies into unique clay sculptures for potted plants. Each clay sculpture will be mixed with seeds to grow unexpected results.
