Poefel PLaza - Simone Schuffelen

SCHUNCK Glass Palace

20-12-2020 t/m 24-01-2021

Entree: gratis

Category: Visual arts

Audience: Adults

Poefel Plaza is a traditional Dutch-style pastry stall, without the pastry, but with a delightfully soft filling.

A bombastic, colourful trip down memory lane by artist Simone Schuffelen, as she reflects on Cultura Nova’s 30-year existence. The SCHUNCK store window is the podium for this performance, and you certainly won’t go away disappointed. It is a peepshow, a diorama and a theatre performance rolled into one. Be prepared for a Christmas without presents and family, in a colourful and extravagant store window, where it is warm and you can take delight in a show where there is nothing to buy.

Simone Schuffelen is a visual artist, but describes herself as an artiste, comedian, multi-talent and full-time human and lover. Her work is not easily categorised. Sometimes she is drag queen Lady Louise, and on other occasions a singer with LosDQ. One thing is certain: the red line in her work is the personality of Simone herself. With nonsensical advertisements in the public space, swinging talk shows, once-in-a-lifetime dinners or festive, let’s say extravagant, performances, Simone enters into a conversation with her audience.

Simone Schuffelen

Simone Schuffelen (1994, Voerendaal) lives and works in Maastricht. After qualifying at the Academie Beeldende Kunsten in Maastricht in 2017, in 2020 she received a Young Talent work allowance from the Mondriaan Fonds.


Simone Schuffelen wil regulary perform in the installation. But even in the absence of the artist, the display case invites you as a colorful viewing box full of surprises during the dark winter days.

English starts at 0.35 min.
