Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir (aka Shoppy): Mirror Mirror at the GOMA Children’s Art Centre

To celebrate GOMA Turns 10, the Children’s Art Centre will present an interactive exhibition by New York-based, Icelandic artist Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir (aka Shoppy).

Shoppy creates spectacular artworks using synthetic hair. She believes that hair can inspire great personal creativity and is a way for people to express who they are to the world.

In this immersive installation children can engage with the artist’s ideas and working methods through hands-on activities. Young visitors will be invited to create their own extraordinary paper hairstyle using specially designed templates and be encouraged to help style a wall of artificial hair-like material.
