worth a trip!! opening this fri @ showroom mama, rotterdam: solo show of abner preis, concentrated around the character called “the great abnerio” and his travels.
more about it via no new enemies: the great abnerio is a ‘strong man’ in his own traveling show, in which he tells stories about his adventures as a super hero, about his friends and the magic he learned along the way. the exhibition will be filled with a magic theater, drawings, sculptures, and an arc with ‘squiglies’ on board. the central piece of the exhibition is a large ‘mary-go-round’ in which visitors can take place and can listen to stories of the adventures of the great abnerio. the audience will be encouraged to transform themselves into the great abnerio. everybody who enters the exhibition receives a mustache just like the great abnerio.
