Make your own DIY zine and paper planes

Online activity 

Our current exhibition From our Beautiful Square was inspired by spending a lot of 2020 inside our own homes. The artists think about time, change and movement.

Print your own activity sheet (a zine with fun activities made about the artwork in this exhibition). You can complete the activity from your own home!

Be inspired by Hiraki Sawa’s video Dwelling by making various paper planes right in the comfort of your own home. In Dwelling, we see miniature aeroplanes travelling around the inside of an apartment. Do the same by making these paper planes. See how they fly and maybe you’ll make a video just like Sawa with the planes travelling around the inside of your home. Don’t forget to send us a copy or tag us on social media so we get to enjoy it too!
