What is a city, other than its streets and squares?

A city is made up of experiences, feelings and the endless words that surround us: posters, advertisements, symbols, signs with directions and names.

At the B&E Goulandris Foundation, the work of one of the most important sculptors worldwide – known as Chryssa – becomes the starting point for the workshop A word for my City!, where children aged 6 to 8 discover the sculptures of Chryssa Vardea and their relationship with letters, writing and forms.

Drawing her inspiration from big city life, Chryssa created large-sized works that play with light, shadows and words. Using a font made especially for this workshop, the children choose a word that is important to them and then create their own sculpture, a word/city, exploring the different ways of folding paper.
