Weaving a Web (upper)

"Ground Break" by Nari Ward

Focus areas

  • Italian
  • History
  • Geography
  • Art and image


In his works, Nari Ward intricately weaves, ties and transforms recycled elements into sculptures and installations, each containing a unique narrative. As he himself points out: “I want to think about care. In finding discarded materials and creating an environment for them to exist and to have meaning echoed through their combinations. I feel like a sense of hopefulness is always present.” Objects help tell not only the stories of the past, of the places where they were discovered, and of the people who once used them, but they also help us write new stories that the viewer can relate to.


Once they have learnt how Nari Ward works, the children will use the thread to weave a web of individual stories that, once they become intertwined with each other, will create a collective tale. After creating their own “web of stories”, they will be able to work on it even more, adding images and words that that are of personal significance to them. These may be inserted between the knots of the narrative, creating a story that remains fresh and unique, and yet enriched by the contributions of all those taking part.
