Florentijn Hofman Likes Them Big


  • SumoMe

Florentijn Hofman loves to blow up (not the boomz way) stuff a million times their original size to reverse the role of man in this world. Imagine being in a room where all your stuffed toys of yesteryear now seem massive enough to trample all over you instead. But it’s not all that bad because right now, I feel like cushioning myself on all that cuddliness I see.

A solo show inspired by the toys and (cuddle)sculptures of children, where the change of scale completely changes their function and feeling.

Don’t forget the rubber duckies too! These harmless yellow quacks are dropping the depth of the bathtub for something more ambitious.
