THE PLAYMAKERS

Currently on at mac birmingham is THE PLAYMAKERS, by KOSUGE1-16 commissioned specifically for mac, and its great! Love the mobiles and the actual child-like joy of walking under the bridge, perfect for Summer at mac.

Here's the blurb>

For their first exhibition, Japanese artists KOSUGE1-16 have created a playful installation at mac.  KOSUGE1-16 is comprised of artists Chishino Kurumada and Takashi Tsuchiya.  The group name is derived from the address, a suburb in Tokyo where the duo initated their arts practice together, with the pair always giving back to that local society, for example via thoughtful interventions such as leaving hme-made meals in artists mailboxes.

KOSUGE1-16 have been in residence throughout June 2012 during which time they have worked with local children to make and design aspects of the exhibition.

Curated by Debbie Kermode and Kaye Winwood this project launches mac birmingham's 50th birthday celebrations.
