Knot Touch – Exhibition – 29 Sep - 29 Apr 2017.

Often galleries and museums are off-limits to visitors as far as touching art and objects. In this exhibition the restriction is lifted.

Using netting, rope and a range of maritime knots, Kang will create a spatial installation for the Maritime Museum that delivers a tactile experience that stimulates the imagination and invites interaction.

In the play area, visitors will be able to climb, roll, push and pull, bounce.

The exhibition is designed to engage a range of visitors including young, older and those with disabilities.
