Gregor Passens KONG BOZZETTI

Gregor Passens



Kong is a recurring figure in the work of Gregor Passens, and KONG BOZZETTI is a series comprising scale models of a ten metre high monumental sculpture. When looking at Kong, the first impression is that of immense strength reminiscent of the threat represented by King Kong in pop culture. This initial impact quickly gives way to a new sensation: Kong's curious and gentle expression actually transforms him into a friendly presence that reminds the viewer of the risk of extinction that is threatening gorillas.
