DESCRIPTION: Join Herve Tullet, the renowned artist, performer, and children's book author for an exceptional interactive art workshop at The GIANT Room as part of his Ideal Exhibition. Ideal Exhibition offers its participants, young and old the opportunity to unleash their creativity and create a work of art in Hervé’s style. The instructions are clear, yet leave much freedom to participants, who act as musicians in a large jazz orchestra, improvising on a theme composed by Hervé. “Ripping, tearing, crumpling, folding, turning over, assembling... my pieces are easy to make.” Herve notes, “But with a simple random gesture, they reveal an image to the eyes that was not expected. There’s a surprise, and this surprise generates an enthusiasm, an energy.” Join him to create your own art pieces in various scales, add light and sound when you wish, and exhibit your masterpieces at The GIANT Wave Makers Festival! Your work will also constitute an Ideal Exhibition that is added to the list of Ideal Exhibitions produced around the world, creating a global work of art.

ABOUT THE ARTIST: Herve is the creator of more than 75 internationally acclaimed children’s books, including New York Times bestseller, “Press Here”. As an artist, his large-scale interactive workshops for young and old, have taken place in various art centers and museums around the world including The Tate Modern London, Guggenheim Museum, MoMA, MoCA, and LACMA Los Angeles.
