Make your own effigy
Free artist-led workshop with Marikit Santiago
Australian Filipino artist Marikit Santiago transforms everyday objects and discarded toys using tape and candle stands to make artworks that are reminiscent of figurative sculptures you might encounter in the Philippines.
Come make an effigy of your own out of recycled materials, alongside Marikit, to add to an ephemeral, accumulative installation in the Gallery.
Drop in any time between 6pm and 7.30pm. All ages and abilities welcome. All materials are provided.
Marikit Santiago was a finalist in the 2016 Archibald Prize. Currently based in the Parramatta Artist Studios, she is one of the artists whose works are on display in the exhibition Balik Bayan at Blacktown Arts Centre, as part of the Bayanihan Philippine Art Project – a collaboration between the Art Gallery of NSW, Blacktown Arts Centre, Mosman Art Gallery, Peacock Gallery (Auburn) and Campbelltown Arts Centre in association with Museums & Galleries of NSW.
