Strange goings-on at the normally staid Lady Lever Gallery this morning as NML staff and children from Church Drive Primary School, Port Sunlight dressed in their pyjamas to publicise the pyjama party this Sunday.
The event is inspired by Sleepwalkers, an installation from Pulling the Lever: Sculptures by Pete Ellis, the contemporary exhibition currently in the gallery, which consists of three pairs of suspended stripy pyjamas. This unique exhibition pays homage to many simple objects that we take for granted such as pyjamas, socks and sausages by displaying them amongst the gallery’s treasures.
The Peter Ellis exhibition opened on October 1st and I’m glad I finally got around to seeing it, it runs until January 8th 2006.
I’m too old for the Sunday party myself, its for children (and teddys) aged 7 and under.
The Lady Lever Art Gallery is inviting all sleepy-heads to a Pyjama Party on Sunday 27 November 2005 from 1330 – 1600 hours, a quirky free event for children aged seven and under.
Pyjamas, slippers, bed-heads and blankets are essential elements of the dress code for anyone attending this slumber party. Cosy story-telling sessions and sculpting activities using play dough are some of the party games that visitors can enjoy whilst lazing around in pyjamas.
