scents Artis

In 2018, The Snifferoo created three fragrances of Elephants for Artis Zoo. It concerns the female elephant in heat, the male in rut and the young male. Elephants communicate with fragrance. In order to inform the public about their secretions, Artis thought it would be fun to make an installation that allows you to smell through the elephant's nose. And it is. Although the Male elephant in rut is quite a sniff.

In collaboration with Anne van Leeuwen, architect Maarten van Kesteren and Astrid Groot & Peter Roessing from the University of Amsterdam.
