Grab the Pussy

Grab the Pussy is an art project where you can try to grab a kitty using an old-fashioned carnival claw crane. No industrial plush, but homemade knitted cats by grandmothers from all over the Netherlands!

Knitting together against loneliness
In conjunction with the ‘Samen Breien’ project of the Nederlands Ouderenfonds, we approached knitting and knooking clubs throughout the Netherlands to knit some kittens. The goal of the broad clubs is to counteract loneliness among the elderly. This project demands attention for that subject. Also, the materials and expenses of the participants will be reimbursed so that everyone can continue knitting.

Trump & Co

The term ‘Grab the Pussy’ is an ironic reference to Donald Trump’s infamous statement – but surely he has never touched such a beautiful knitted cat with his own hands. Meow!

The Fair Grounds 
Grab The Pussy is part of The Fair Grounds: an artistic project by media design collective DROPSTUFF.nl, consisting of a collection of artworks where amusement rides are presented as art installations. A new narrative has been added to pre-existing attractions and old forms of entertainment have been updated. The result is a fairground where every ride has been modified, enhanced or completely redesigned: popular culture meets high tech and high art!
