This interactive exhibition was for Culture Days’ 1st National Congress on Culture. Featuring the common paper clip as an emblem of Culture Days’ role in facilitating knowledge exchange as well as artistic development, the interactive exhibition was created to engage Congress participants with the Culture Days themes of “create, participate, celebrate.”
Delegates at the Congress were invited to make art out of paper clips. Everywhere you looked, people were twisting, assembling, designing paper clip art. Many of them took their work home with them (the jewellery pieces especially!) but you can view their works on Instagram by searching #CultureDays and #paperclipart. You can also add a photo of your own creation – wherever you are! The Culture Days “Art My Paper Clip!” online gallery shows some of the most recent uploads.
This beautiful concept was envisioned by artist Helen Yung.
