Meet the Beests!

Theo Jansen’s kinetic creatures on tour

Limbering up for their solo show at the Peabody Essex Museum, on view September 19, 2015 to January 3, 2016, Theo Jansen’s famed Strandbeests (“beach animals”) will be meeting the public at a series of happenings along the East Coast.

At Peabody Essex Museum, the exhibition will explore the Strandbeests’ unique locomotion and their fusion of art and science, sculpture and performance. It will examine the creatures’ evolutionary development under Jansen’s careful care, with artist sketches, demonstrations of the creatures' complex ambulatory systems, a hall of "fossils", and photography by Lena Herzog.
