Terrifying frightening critters
On 20 and 21 in May 2017, during the art route South Explorer In the Japanese cultural center Shofukan you can see the exhibition 'Les Petites Peurs' by the Rotterdam artist SPAM van Griensven. In a Wunderkammer, or curiosity cabinet, a large collection of small lifelike animal figures can be admired. It is reminiscent of the oddities cabinets from days gone by.
