The Stuff of Nightmares

Posted by Fabio 2 June 2011

For The Stuff of Nightmares, the V&A Museum of Childhood’s Front Room Gallery will be transformed into a sinister forest where anything might happen, the dark setting for a re-telling of The Brothers Grimm’s Fundevogel, a tale of abduction, fear, evil old women, revenge and ultimately, friendship.

The installation, made by local schoolchildren working with artists, sits alongside work by Katherine Tulloh, Ruth Weinberg, Daniel Bell and Sharon Brindle, which takes a closer look at the playthings of innocents.
