Sculptures Come to Life

Pera Kids
Ages 4-6

Now it’s time to imagine that we are in the Pera Museum, and you are a priceless sculpture on display here. Sculptures do not move, do they? So you have to keep the same pose without moving at all. The museum’s security is about to patrol the museum, and the sculptures must be completely still when they are here. However, when the security guard gets tired and goes to take a nap, you can switch places and poses. However, you must stay still once again when the security guard comes back. If the guard notices that you have changed places, you might get carried back to your original position. If the guard spots someone moving, that player becomes the new guard in the next round, and the game continues with different sculptures.

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
