Kingston Arts challenged 12 community workshop participants to make the impossible possible by creating unique and unforgettable ceramic superheroes with prominent contemporary artist and ceramicist Vipoo Srivilasa at his ClayLAB studio in Cheltenham.
Vipoo Srivilasa’s work is a playful blend of historical, figurative and decorative art practices with a healthy dose of contemporary culture. Collaboration is an important part of Vipoo’s practice and he has been using clay to engage communities with his creative processes for over 10 years
Visit Kingston Arts Centre in Moorabbin this September and October during the Melbourne Fringe Festival to see these superhero designs come to life as ceramic sculptures.
Melbourne Fringe Festival is a platform for experimentation with an ethos of inclusivity and in the spirit of Fringe, workshop participants were from diverse backgrounds, abilities and experience.
Fun for kids!
Visit Kingston Arts these school holidays to see this exhibition of pint-sized ceramic superheroes and learn the stories behind them with superhero colouring-in activities for kids in the galleries. This a free drop in activity held during exhibition opening hours with all materials provided by Kingston Arts.
- Participants of all ages are welcome but Kingston Arts asks that all children under 13 be supervised by parents and guardians in the gallery at all times as the sculptures are fragile.
- All drop-in sessions are unsupervised by staff and participants may come and go as they please.
