Visual Art students in Years 8 to 12 experienced an exhibition of the senses last Tuesday and Wednesday, visiting 'Sugar Spin' at the Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane. Students viewed and interacted with contemporary artworks exploring light, space, architecture and the senses.
We began with this group photo in front of artwork Nervescape, a multi-coloured landscape of synthetic hair by Icelandic-born artist Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir a.k.a. Shoplifter. Students then sought out their particular focus artworks to study for their extended writing assignment. It wasn’t long though till students were expanding their architectural imagination at the lego installation, overlooking the Brisbane River.
Their visit concluded with Carsten Höller's much-loved Left/Right Slide, spiralling students from the top floor of GOMA to the bottom with the intention of inspiring his audience to see a problem from a different point of view.
