Tonight I writing a post, I have been wanting to write for ages. Do you remember the white dinner in Hamburg? I discovered the Minibibo during the white dinner as they were decorating the big table just next to mine. The “Minibibo Miniaturen” are a creation of Sylke Fischöder alias dekofysch.
These white sculptures are kept under a cloche and illuminated with LED and the light intensity can be controlled by a remote control.
This one is calles “Scene to eat”
This one is called “Speisenaufzug” (Food Elevator)
and this one is my favorite one: It is called the “Hamburger Kessel” (Hamburg Kettel). It just looks cute and poetic with all the animals, but it is based on a true story. Kettling is a police tactic for controlling large crowds during demonstrations. It involves the formation of large cordons of police officers who then move to contain a crowd within a limited area. Protesters are left only one choice of exit, determined by the police, or are completely prevented from leaving.
During a demonstration by anti-nuclear protestors in Hamburg on 8 May 1986, Hamburg Police cordoned approximately 800 people into a “kettle” for several hours. The sculpture is a poetic reference to this political event.
