The 7th edition of the Monaco TROTT ‘N’ ROLL is scheduled to take place on September 18, 2021, a day of fun for children and their parents organized by the Flavien Foundation, which funds research into the study and treatment of child cancer.

Within the framework of Trott’n’Roll, many entertainment events are planned for both the little ones and the whole family. Together, children and adults will be able to enjoy a ride on scooters, which the son of the founder of the Foundation, Flavien, who died of cancer, loved so much. It was in his honor that the organization was named and, under his auspices, the Monaco Science Center, sponsored by the Foundation, is persistently seeking to find a medicine that can save tens of thousands children’s lives and save many families from a terrible tragedy, the loss of a child due to a serious illness.

This year Nouveau Musée National de Monaco — Villa Paloma is displaying works of Shimabuku put together in the exhibition called The 165-metre Mermaid and Other Stories.

In the style of an epic poem, the exhibition The 165-metre Mermaid and Other Stories recounts the artist Shimabuku’s adventures around the world, from his native Japan to the Principality of Monaco via Brazil, Australia, and many other countries.

The artist’s texts form the storyline for a journey that brings together over 20 installations, films, sculptures and photographs created over the last 30 years.

On a visit to Fukuoka Shimabuku discovered the legend and relics of a mermaid whose body was 165 metres long and decided to make this story his own and expand it, buying a long rope also 165 metres long. Taken around the world, this rope brings him closer to the fish-woman and becomes a vector linking fiction to reality, past to present and Japan to the different countries where the work is presented. Acquired by the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco in 2018, the installation I’m travelling with 165-metre Mermaid (1998–ongoing) forms the starting point for the exhibition and is enriched by the presence of artefacts produced in Monaco by different craftspeople invited in turn to make this story into a work of their own.

Of course there are other interesting events taking place in Monaco. If you want to learn more about exhibitions that are open in Monaco these days visit our Calendar.

So have fun and enjoy your weekend!
