dutch artist florentijn hofman has set his latest, super-scale sculpture ‘moon rabit’ daydreaming towards the sky, inviting those passing by the taiwanese taoyuan military base to share in a sense of fantasy and imagination. the huge white bunny lounges lazily on the grassy arch of a former bunker, with outstretched arms and floppy ears resting comfortably in the landscape. made from overlapping sheets of paper, wood and styrofoam, the crafty critter embodies hofman’s use of everyday material as an artistic medium.

‘the legend of chang-e and jade rabbit enchanted and inspired me to make the work‘ explains hofman‘the moon rabbit is laying against the bunker, dreaming and thinking about life and dreaming the impossible possible and creating it’s own true stories.’
