3. Florentijn Hofman: Celebrate

In 2007, a 26-meter-high giant rubber duck sailed into the harbor of Amsterdam, Netherlands. Overnight, the "big yellow duck" was popular on the Internet and became a well-known art icon! He is the famous Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman.

On August 6, 2022, Hofman will bring his "Animal Troupe" from all corners of the world to Beijing, China, inviting the audience to join him in this grand party for a limited time of three months. The exhibition is Hofman's first large-scale solo exhibition in mainland China and will feature more than 20 newly produced works.

In this exhibition, confetti is used as a symbol of the ritual of celebration, linking the colors of "celebration" throughout the exhibition. Through the symbolism of confetti, Hofman hopes to awaken the viewers to re-examine the nature of human acts of celebration.
