Everyday entanglement is an interactive play exhibition for the senses, created entirely from a small child’s perspective. Here, children and adults can explore together three little fun ‘everyday worlds’ and build castles from fish fingers, play peekaboo with pot lids, listen to the whispering cleaner chants, whirl in a giddy dance washing machine and play in your own kitchen orchestra.. The exhibition is based on Annika Thore illustrations of everyday clutter and home piles; this is now brought to life with lots of room to play!
