Iza Rutkowska “What animal is this?”
Realization: Matadero, Madrid, May-December 2018
“What animal is this?” Is the participatory creation of a playground. The project was created as a result of play with technical drawings of the Matadero building. During the workshops, the children watched the outlines of the building from a bird’s-eye view. At first they treated it like a map, which allows them to discover the recesses of the building, learn the size and specificity of the space in which they are located. Later, they treated the map as the basis for an architectural mock-up, and they drew out of the shapes that hide in the building outlines, glued animals that gave them the function of a playground. There have been ideas like the snake, which is a tunnel that you can enter. An animal with playful eyes to jump on.
