Hippopothames by florentijn hofman
semi-immersed in the water, the large-scale mammal is made of overlapping panels, and features huge painted eyes and pink-colored ears and nose. ‘the purpose of setting my sculptures in the public domain has always been to give members of the public a break from their daily routines, to inspire conversation and to cause astonishment.’ hofman describes ‘I hope the location of my sculpture will inspire passers-by to engage with its surrounding area of nine elms on the south bank, and to discover the various other events within the totally thames programme celebrating london’s river’. ‘hippopothames’ will remain on site until september 28th, 2014.
