Cowherd & The Weaver Girl
Cowherder and The Weaver Girl depicts scenes from the mythological story around which the Chinese Festival, Qixi is based.
Designed to look like you are stepping into a giant pop up children’s book, this installation depicts a scene from the mythological story around which the Chinese festival, Qixi is based.
The installation invites friends, families and lovers to step into a giant pop up story book to become a feature in the narrative, where a flock of magpies form a bridge to reunite a family split between heaven and Earth.
Qixi falls on 14th August which is Chinese Valentines Day – a chance to celebrate love, culture, friendship and community.

Cowheard and Weaver Girl has been commissioned by Culture Liverpool and supported by Arts Council England.
