“Impossible, You Say? Nothing is impossible when you work for the circus,” (McSweeney’s)
SanderBokkinga’s Floating Circus is a collection of objects that tell the story of a slightly anarchic, yet friendly, clandestine ensemble that somewhat thrusts itself upon the strict Sanaa building.
With various floating elements, SanderBokkinga tries to enrich the image, the KAF offers as a “kunstlinie”. With an abundant design language and a wink, the Floating Circus offers a balance for the strict Japanese architecture.
The temporary nature, the reference to the history of the location and the avoidance of being part of the building, are three of the reasons to make the circus a Floating Circus. The individual components all have their own story, but together, in cooperation with the visitors of the KAF, they bring the story to life. The story of a life that is different from the lives of ordinary people like you and me.
