Slow Slugs is a gigantic art installation made out of a whopping 40,000 plastic bags. An eco-friendly creation, to say the very least, the Slow Slugs sculptures were put together in Angers, France. On display in September, they were created for a performing arts festival called Accroche-Coeurs.
Created by Florentijn Hofman, who is known for erecting giant sculptures including Macaco Gordo and Big Yellow Rabbit, the Slow Slugs art installation is something else entirely. Hofman reveals a more serious undertone, "The slugs are ascending this steep city staircase that leads up to a huge Catholic church, essentially signifying their slow crawl towards death. The work reminds us of religion, mortality, natural decay and the slow suffocation of commercialized societies."
