Shock shop: Little Shop of Horrors opens

29.10.2009 London : Gallery : RA 13

London – A new retail venture invites shoppers to indulge in the weird and wonderful. With an offering that includes human fetuses, mutated teddy bears and shrunken heads, the Little Shop of Horrors lives up to its name.

The latest incarnation of the Last Tuesday Society – a Pataphysical organisation dedicated to the esoteric, literary and artistic side of London life – the shop also offers a variety of events, such as séances, cocktail-making masterclasses, and talks on subjects from syphilis to the atmosphere of heaven.

Crossing the boundaries between retail venue, gallery and social space, the Little Shop of Horrors joins Los Angeles’s Space15Twenty and Antwerp’s RA 13 as worthy additions to a retail landscape in transition.
