Trude

About This Project

Associations with a body, or a balloon, or a larva, or perhaps a piglet, or…? Both sensual and not. Something children can recognise, become inquisitive about, hide in and name like a pet.

 

The Sculpture stands unperturbed and calm, inviting and solid, while its puffiness alludes to a fragility that could burst at any moment.

 

Children measure their bodies against Trude’s body.
