South Bank's Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) is home to an excellent child-friendly exhibition called Mirror Mirror, by New York based, Icelandic artist, Hrafnhildur Arnadottir (aka Shoppy).

Mirror Mirror is an interactive exploration of vanity, hence the abundance of shiny mirrors in all shapes and sizes. The fun part is where children are invited to select a crazy, colourful hairstyle to decorate using the materials provided. There are miniature tables and chairs set up with hair covered umbrellas and even a stage to present their new hairstyles to the local adoring crowds.

One wall is covered in artist, Shoppy's signature rainbow "hair" (which is actually multi-colored rope) where little hands are welcome to plait or twist the artificial hair into any woven form they choose. It is an excellent wall for learning to weave - anyone for a fishtail? The walls of the entire exhibition are also decorated with Shoppy's vibrant artwork.

The Mirror Mirror Exhibition provides a great opportunity for parents and carers to enjoy creating art with their children in a quiet space at GOMA. So allow the creativity to unfold - it might be surprising what ideas they come up with, after all hair is our expression of who we are to the world.
