Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman (previously featured here) recently created yet another awesome large-scale installation, this time in the town of Angers, in western France. Entitled Slow Slugs, the piece was created for the Accroche Coeurs Festival. The monstrous mollusks, each measuring 18 x 7.5 x 5 meters (60 x 24.5 x 16 feet), were created by attaching 40,000 colourful plastic bags to netting that was placed over wire frames.
“The work stood for a total of eight days, with an immense amount of time and planning having gone into its construction. After two weeks of sketching and model making, the massive metal frame was bent and formed in the artist’s studio in Rotterdam. The remainder of the production was completed in France with the skeleton welded on site as well as the bags fastened to the frame.”
