[UPDATE] The display has been extended to November 20th, 2019!
HOLIDAY is an inflatable sculpture depicting KAWS’ character, COMPANION, in a laid-back position. The colossal sculpture, measuring at a height of 40 meters, represents the artist’s attempt to remind passersby to relax in an increasingly hectic world. Much like the rest of KAWS’ body of work, the installation uses wit and irreverence to provide a playful commentary on our humanity.
With gloved hands and X’s for eyes, the highly-popular COMPANION character was first created in the late 1990s and has become a symbol that both embraces and rejects the ideals of today’s consumerist society.
The work, currently situated at the Dhow Harbour, is on display for the first time in the Middle East and joins Qatar’s growing portfolio of permanent and temporary public art pieces.
Date: 6 November to 20 November 2019
