Big yellow Rabbit.
constructed out of locally-manufactured shingles and a wooden armature, the temporary sculpture depicts a giant plush rabbit that has been seemingly dropped into the center of the swedish plaza.the large-scale intervention rests against the engelbrekt monument, the original pivot point of the open site. observers are encouraged to experience the public space within the new context of the rabbit as well as when the presence of the sculpture is gone.
as with his previous work, [florentijn] hofman's sculpture involved the locals with more than 25 volunteers and craftsman coming together to construct the rabbit.
