The Rabbit Knows Prints / Fairy-tales – Tales we were told when young!

20.00

Τhe Rabbit Knows, a cartoonist from Greece, collaborates with It’s all, oh so souvenir to me!, and together they carry a series of his drawings, creating the brand new poster collection, Anarchy in Fairy-tales – Tales we were told when young! Focusing on fairy tales told differently, through the socio-political prism of Greece today.

From Alice in Wonderland to the Little Red Riding Hood and the enigmatic Little Pony to the (not so) Sleeping Beauty, The Rabbit Knows creates heroes that may seem innocent and naive but turn out to be unorthodox, sarcastic and so shrewd. With just one image and two lines, he comes to suggest a seemingly oblique but so logical and charming other reading of the world.

Taking form in a unique, witty and reactive poster collection which consist of 21 cartoon sketches.

Once upon a time. What once upon a time?
Stories told to us when we were young to help us fall sleep. Tales told to us by adults so as to keep us awake.
Seven dwarfs and the economy. Cinderella and austerity. The big bad wolf and riot police. Tales we tell ourselves and tales we’ve been told.
Fairy tales imagined! Creatures of our imagination and creatures that conqueror our imagination.
Crayons, computers, scrapbooks, the internet, roller skates and tanks. Homework and military service. They took the lollipops out of our hands and bombed us.
We never grow up, nor do we want to stay young.
In between, and yet, a subtle, silent, tenacious belief in something better. A hidden will to open a crack between the stories we’ve learned, to unfold the stories we want to tell and the dreams we want to live.
Anarchy in fairy tales.
And did they live happily ever after? And did we? We will say.
