‘Mascottegalerij / Mascot Gallery’ is an overview of 84 textile cuddle toys, designed and made by children in a participative process during a series of days called ‘Bonte Zondagen’ at the house of culture De Warande, Turnhout (BE). Artist Kristof Van Gestel developed a collective and participative workshop: starting from abstract shapes, formed by the Idiosyncratic Machine, another project initiated by Van Gestel and later screen-printed, the kids could interpret their own Mascottes. With the help of voluntary seamstresses the designs got a textile shape.
