Invited by Atopos cvc, French artist Shoboshobo was commissioned to give life to these monstrous and gigantic creatures that inhabited his universe. Humanoid figures, dismembered and disfigured, monstrous, naïve and sexy, delightful and violent, all belonging to a broader pop phenomenon, that of Contemporary Characters. Shoboshobo also presented a series of prints and drawings in ink and felt tip pen and four commissioned murals that he painted a few days before the opening. The soundtrack of the exhibition has been composed by Shoboshobo, especially for ZZZzzzZZZZ in Atopos and was a significant feature of the exhibition.
The exhibition was specifically designed for the Atopos’ new building and formed part of our upcoming exhibition ARRRGH! Monsters in Fashion and the NOT A TOY publication, related to the phenomenon of Contemporary Characters.
