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.
