Space in Motion (lower and upper primary)

"Neons Corridors Rooms" by Bruce Nauman

Introduction

In some of his installations, Bruce Nauman uses rooms, corridors, or a combination of the two, in which geometric shapes, fluorescent tubes, video cameras, monitors, voices and sounds interact to create sensations and emotions in the visitors who go through them. The body plays a key role in the artist’s work, for he views it as a fundamental means for understanding oneself and the world, as he himself mentioned in an interview: “[…] An awareness of yourself comes from a certain amount of activity, and you can’t get it from just thinking about yourself. You do exercises, you have certain kinds of awarenesses that you don’t have if you read books.”

Focus areas

  • Physical education
  • Art and Image

Educational aims and activities

The arts tutors will help the children discover the installations through direct bodily experience as they go through them, experiencing the different sensations brought about by the visual and auditory perceptions aroused by the works themselves.
With the help of the arts tutors and a large map of the exhibition, the children will learn to recognise and play with topological concepts not only to understand the exhibition, but also to enrich their daily perceptions and experiences.
