The Collector, Six Stories About A Bad Wolf
High-profile Greek caricaturist Soloup (Antonis Nikolopoulos) knows that grown-ups need fairytales too sometimes. Go beyond the pages of his new modern graphic fairytale for adults – “The Collector, Six Stories about a Bad Wolf” – at this highly-visual showing of storyboards, drafts, pencil sketches and constructions, aimed at animating the book’s six narratives. Soloup’s graphic offering re-tells Grimm’s “Little Red Riding Hood” with exchanges between Lewis Carroll’s Mad Hatter and White Rabbit from “Alice in Wonderland”. The publication addresses the alienation of children from their parents after a divorce – but keeps alive the hope of rapprochement. The exhibition includes workshops and concerts and is supported by the Athens’ World Book Capital project.
