Past event

These summer holidays, work with Kyoko Imazu, Artist in Residence at QUT Art Museum during the exhibition Beyond Reason, to make your own mythical monster shadow puppets inspired by Japanese folklore. Create enchanting characters and props, then bring your legendary tales to life on the shadow puppet stage!

Kyoko's art practice features magical and whimsical characters created from her memories and stories from childhood to now. She is inspired by creatures from Japanese folklore, and the often-overlooked world of some of our smallest neighbours, including insects, weeds and pebbles, to create her own wonderous worlds.

Born in Japan, Kyoko moved to Australia in 2002 and she is based in Melbourne. She works in a range of mediums including puppetry, paper cutting, printmaking and ceramics and she has exhibited nationally and internationally, with her artworks in institutional and private collections worldwide.

This is a free program designed for 5+, all welcome.

The activity is part of the QUT Summer Holiday Program.
