Wind Walkers: Theo Jansen’s Strandbeests
Now until 30 Sep 2018; 10am - 7pm
ArtScience Museum
From $10.25 each (Family of 4)

Come walk with the beasts, as ArtScience Museum unveils the first Southeast Asian exhibition of Theo Jansen’s world famous moving sculptures. Dutch sculptor, Theo Jansen, has spent the last 28 years designing and building a series of wind-powered creatures called Strandbeests or ‘beach animals’. Jansen’s extraordinary creations, which he describes as “a new form of life”, are a true embodiment of art, science, engineering and performance.

Presented in four sections, the exhibition brings together 13 large-scale Strandbeests, from the most recent moving Strandbeests to ‘fossils’ of past beasts, accompanied by a comprehensive collection of films, artist sketches and prototypes. It starts by charting Jansen’s imaginative vision and the origin of Strandbeests, to unraveling the science behind the Strandbeests’ unique locomotion as well as the processes that have driven their evolution. It further explores how Jansen’s beach-walking creatures have dramatically advanced in form and function over the years, becoming more than the practical machines he originally intended, and instead evolving into a new species of man-made animals. For tickets, visit HERE.
