The design of my exhibition space is being finalised this week. The work is all being framed, all the props are being made.
We are now having mobiles of animals from Kangaroos Cancan Cafe. I think the platypus and koala would be really funny. The monkeys are now part of a monkey's tea party instead, as in Stinky!, with fake food etc for children's play. This will combine nicely with the magnetic flies game.
I am a little disappointed that we are unable to include the ark now, with the little stuffed animals for the children to put into it. Some breakdown in communication meant that the publisher did not supply copies of Lark in the Ark for sale at the show, and so the curator has dropped the idea. Very frustrating!
We are still going to have the reading area, which will be a mock-up of Smudge's sitting room, with pictures of Smudge and her friends on the wall in frames, and Smudge visible through a fake window, playing in the garden. Aaaaah...
