For four weeks, the students of primary school Sint Aloysius in Maastricht participated in the project The Invisible Collection.

Children described their favorite artwork, sharing their feelings when they see or smell it, what they fantasize about, and what they think about it. The project teaches children to reflect on their own perceptions and the experiences of others. Teachers can use this story archive to explore themes such as identity, culture, society, language, and history in their own way.

Following an audio story about the ‘cockroach world’ by Peruvian artist Arturo Kameya, featured in the exhibition Opaque Spirits, the students created their own stories and crafted models of their fantasy worlds using various materials.

Until Sunday 12 May, their creations will be exhibited in the ice house at the back of the Marres garden. Visitors can also listen to their recorded stories for The Invisible Collection. Our city garden and the ice house are free to visit for everyone. Children under 18 always get free entrance to the exhibition.
