Feestaardvarken: Giant Party Aardvark by Florentijn Hofman

Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman was commissioned by the Burgers’ Zoo in Arnhem, Holland, to create a site specific installation to celebrate its 100th anniversary. The Feestaardvarken is a 30 meter long concrete sculpture which has the appearance of a abstracted aardvark with a golden partyhat on.

You can watch the making-of the massive sculpture, hereLast week we showed you another recent Florentijn Hofman’s installation on display on the occasion of The Netherlands Bilateral Year 2013 in St. Petersburg, Russia.
