Les Petites Peurs
Terrifying frightening critters
On 20 and 21 in May 2017, during the art route South Explorer the exhibition 'Les Petites Peurs' by the Rotterdam artist SPAM van Griensven can be seen in the Japanese cultural center Shofukan. A large collection of small lifelike animal figures can be admired in a Wunderkammer, or cabinet of curiosities. It is reminiscent of cabinets of curiosities from a bygone era. SPAM van Griensven's recent work is inspired by Japanese myths in which the fox takes on a human form to deceive, love or protect us.
Location and times: Shofukan, Charloisse Kerksingel 32-14 in Rotterdam, open: 13u-18u.
Extra information: on 20 May at 15u there is a special event with opening speech by Baschz Leeft and live Shakuhachi music by Hélène Seiyu Codjo.
This project was made possible with a financial contribution from CBK Rotterdam.
