“Private Language” is a project by one of my favourite artists, Malin Gabriella Nordin. She recently invited eleven children, ages 3 – 5, to interpret a collection of her sculptures:

“I met with each child individually for an hour to discuss the collection: what they thought the sculptures looked like, if there was a story, which one they liked the most, etc. I asked each one of them if they felt the collection was missing something and if so could they draw the missing piece. I also asked them if the sculptures were placed in the right order or if they wanted to rearrange them, which all except for one did. The upcoming months I will interpret their drawings and make their missing pieces into new sculptures and paintings.”

I usually include a handful of images, but I’ve included 30 images here. They were too beautiful not to post. I guess it’s kind of obvious that I love this project.
