Yellow Creature – Aspects of Transformation

Group exhibition at Kunstmuseum Luzern, Luzern (CH)
The British author and illustrator Mervyn Peake (1911–1968) created the Yellow Creature as early as 1939, a figure that is always changing between woman and man, animal and human while being joyfully true to itself. Thus, Yellow Creature lends its name to the exhibition, which is concerned with the boarders between sexes and categories.
