Kate Beynon: Friendly Beasts

QAGOMA

1st April - 22nd October

Kate Beynon draws on multiple visual traditions as the foundation for her artworks, including Western and Eastern comic books, mythology, animation, film, graffiti, calligraphy and fashion.

In 'Friendly Beasts', Kate Beynon brings to life four hybrid figures who are inspired by mythological figures, deities, theatrical masks and supernatural creatures. Young visitors will meet these benevolent friends - Blue Shaman, Lotus Monkey, Tu-Dao Dog and Gorgon Girl - who each have their own traits and personalities and aim to promote imagination, creative expression and fun.

Children and families can engage with the Friendly Beasts through interactive activities, which include creating a new 'beast' identity by combining character features as part of a mask-making activity, dancing with the beasts in the artist's video installation Visions from a Ghost Tale / Friendly Beasts edit 2017, and contributing to the beasts' magical world in the collaborative drawing activity The Lotus Garden.
