A new exhibition,titled ‘The Imaginary Friends Collection, opened on February 1 at the V&A Museum of Childhood in the East End of London.
Starting back in September 2015, they invited more than 60 children to their workshop where they described their imaginary friends in as much detail as possible. Then they were brought to life by artists like Tsuneo Goda, the creator of the Japanese pop icon Domo Kun. Aardman, famous for their creation of Wallace & Gromit and Becky & Joe the two creators of the viral hit ‘Don’t Hug me I Am Scared’.
The Director of the V&A Museum of Child, says “This new campaign has brought together children’s imaginations with some of the UK’s most exciting designers and artists, in an exciting project to bring their ‘imaginary friends’ to life for all to see. The Museum of Childhood is part of the V&A family of museums and committed to inspiring creativity in all.”
“This was a really fun project to be involved in and it’s such a great idea. Hopefully bringing the imaginary friends to life won’t give the children nightmares… we’re not sure we would want to hang out with Chloe ourselves!”
What a beautiful idea! I love the expression on the kid’s faces!
