Free with general Museum admission


Internationally-acclaimed Dutch visual artist Florentijn Hofman is the creator of mammoth sculptures, many originating from everyday objects and placed in environments crucial to making a statement and astonishing the viewer.

Hofman speaks about his inventive, bold, cartoonish works and how they alienate, unsettle or cause an uproar, including Rubber Duck (at Cockle Bay, Darling Harbour throughout Sydney Festival 2013), Fat Monkey (2010), comprising 10,000 bright-coloured flip-flops, and Steelman (2011), an 11-metre high bear with a pillow under its arm.

60min talk followed by refreshments.

Part of Sydney Festival 2013.
