Baby steps: Roman Ondák’s Teaching to Walk

Over the last two weeks, ACCA has become a playground of sorts for mothers and their young children. As part of Slovakian artist, Roman Ondak’s performance work – Teaching to Walk – mothers are invited into the gallery on a daily basis to help their child practice taking their first steps. Ondák is known for using artistic interventions to blur the boundaries between art and reality. Teaching to Walk captures a short-lived but essential moment in the life of a human being and Ondák wants audiences to discover this instant, not by representing it, but by involving us in it.

The Teaching to Walk performances continue throughout the show until 20 November. Mums and bubs interested in being part of this major exhibition should contact Alison Lasek at Australian Centre for Contemporary Art on 9697 9999 or alasek@accaonline.org.au. ACCA will provide all participants with complimentary tea or coffee at our café.
