SHRUNKEN heads are bombing their way to Rose Hill this weekend in a special art workshop.

Mexican artist Abraham Cruzvillegas will be teaching residents how to make ‘head bombs’ inspired by Amazonian tsantsa, or shrunken heads.

The heads, which are made out of soil and seeds from Port Meadow, will then be used in a game of Petanque, a type of boules.

The work coincides with his new exhibition at Modern Art Oxford.

Curator Paul Luckraft said: “There’s a playful, if slightly provocative, sense of humour in Abraham Cruzvillegas’ work and the ‘Head Bombs’ piece is no exception.”

Anticipation, Encounter, Farewell will run from 2pm until 4pm on Saturday at Spencer Crescent Recreation Field.
