"Colour-Copy”

This workshop invites children to discover what a monochrome is and to reflect on the notion of copying and reappropriation as discussed by artist Sherrie Levine in the exhibition Une seconde d’éternité. After observing the multitude of colours around them and choosing the favourite colour they have found in the museum, they are invited to capture it with a Polaroid camera, before trying to reproduce it as closely as possible in paint.

After visiting the building and identifying its various architectural features, the children are invited to create a hybrid architectural structure out of paper. Through a game of collage and folding that produces optical illusions, they are able to bring the past and present together with their own hands.
