Bright jellyfish: Nora Juncker has developed an installation consisting of bright jellyfish created from recycled plastic, while acknowledging the delicacy of lace. Suspended at different levels, the installation draws the viewer's attention while they contemplate humanity's ecological imprint on the world. In the workshop, you can try your hand at weaving your own pieces of plastic lace from strips of plastic bags. Placed next to each other, the pieces will create a collective work that will ultimately take the form of a final jellyfish to complete the installation.
Workshops: 20:00 – 20:30 – 21:00 – 21:30 – 22:00
