Royal de Luxe’s Berlin Reunion

October 13th, 2009, 10:03 am by Sara

As we mentioned before, the French contemporary street theater Royal de Luxe staged a citywide performance in Berlin over that unfolded over the course of three days. Over a million people came to watch. We are sad that we weren’t able to be there, but we are glad that The Big Picture at Boston.com has a fantastic series of photographs of the event:

A Giant Awakes In Nantes

The French street theatre company Royale de Luxe (whom you may remember as creators of The Little Girl Giant and The Sultan’s Elephant) debuted a new show last week in their hometown of Nantes. I so wish I could see this live:

Nipper, meet Mr. Ed

May 16th, 2009, 2:36 pm by Greg

We here at Nippertown do love our giant outdoor dog sculptures, of course. That pretty much goes without saying. But we also love our outdoor horse art, which is why we’re pretty jazzed about Mark Wallinger’s proposal to build a 164-foot-tall sculpture of a white horse in Kent, England.

His design won a $2.8 million commission through a landmark art competition, and if the work is actually constructed, it will be England’s biggest public artwork.

Naturally, not everyone shares our enthusiasm. One local resident told the Guardian, “Nobody had asked whether or not we wanted to wake up every morning looking into a giant horse’s arse.” Hmmmm…
