Family Weekend: plants in common

Serpentine Gallery 27–29 Apr 2019 Free

Artists One Of My Kind (OOMK) invited children and their families to come together to think about what we give and take from the natural world.

Focusing on the theme of nature, OOMK developed an interactive environment inviting families to explore natural objects and work together to create monoprints, using the textures and shapes of plants as inspiration.

The event was free, drop-in and suitable for families with children of all ages.

This workshop was programmed in parallel with Emma Kunz – Visionary Drawings: An exhibition conceived with Christodoulos Panayiotou and Hito Steyerl: Power Plants.

OOMK were the 2019 Serpentine Family Artists-in-Residence. Over the course of the year, OOMK developed _____ in common, a series of workshops that brought together children and adults to explore the idea of the commons – the cultural and natural resources that could be used by all members of society. Through their residency, they aimed to support and sustain a renewed responsibility for each other and the natural world.
