We are pleased to share Syagini Ratna Wulan's project for Asia Pacific Trienalle Kids at QAGOMA. APT10 Kids was opened in September 25, with Monad by Syagini Ratna Wulan as one of its featured projects. Along with Syagini Ratna Wulan, APT10 Kids features seven projects by artists from across the Asia Pacific region that celebrate inclusion and diversity, and the importance of collaboration and community.
In Monad, Syagini invites children to transform large-scale mandalas on the walls and floor by using colourful, magnetic blocks to create patterns. Syagini hopes her activity will be a calming and meditative experience.
