Blue Baby - eine 2,80 m hohe und 380 kg schwere Skulptur des Friedberger Künstlers Wolfgang Auer

Zwischen 2007 und 2011 hat Auer mehrere dieser Figuren in verschiedenen Größen und Positionen aus Kunststoff und Textilien gestaltet. Seitdem "krabbeln" sie durch Städte und Galerien im In- und Ausland.

Nun sollte es bis Dezember in Königsbrunn (bei Augsburg) verweilen - leider wurde die Plastik in der Nacht auf Samstag, 5. Oktober von Unbekannten umgeworfen und so schwer beschädigt, dass es nunmehr entfernt werden muss. Bereits drei Wochen zuvor hatten Randalierer das Gesicht schwarz bemalt, was der Künstler ein paar Tage später persönlich wieder entfernt hatte.

Seine kleinere "große Schwester" (Golden Girl, 2,40 m lang) bleibt vorerst an ihrem Standort.

Between 2007 and 2011, Auer has designed several of these figures in different sizes and positions of plastic and textiles. Since then they "crawl" through Cities and galleries at home and abroad.

Now it should stay until December in Königsbrunn (near Augsburg) - unfortunately the plastic was overturned by strangers in the night on Saturday 5th October and so badly damaged that it must be removed now. Just three weeks earlier, rioters had painted the face black which the artist had removed by himself a few days later.

Its smaller "big sister" (Golden Girl, 2.40 m long) initially remains at its place.

Haha!Great kitschy photo! The animals version of the song used to be my personal favorite .Unfortunatelly i didn't listen to your song because it has been taken out from youtube.

Well, Kostas, it was really a bit strange to see this big blue baby but I like such "different" things unfortunately some people didn't like it, so they have destroyed it! :(

Always the same with YT - I'll add an other version!

Many thanks for L&F and greetings,
