After offering to the general public the possibility to visit Lionel Richie’s head or even spend a night inside of it and coming up with the laser cat, Hungry Castle – which brings together Killian Cooper and Dave Glass and makes Irish and Australian ideas flourish on Spanish ground – comes up again with “cool shit” and puts Nicholas Cage in a cage.
This installation will be available on July 24th, at Splendour in the Grass Festival, Australia. This meme inspired masterpiece was built to bounce and is an artwork that reflects the internet and the internet’s effect on culture.
Based in Barcelona, Hungry Castle is the creative studio featuring Dave Glass and Kill Cooper that specialize in creating public art and fashion which they call Cool Shit. Their art inspires the fashion but it’s the fashion that funds their art. Therefore to purchase a Cool Shit Cap is to patron a Cool Shit Project.
Working collectively since 2011 the goal has always been to make big, playful things of cultural impact and use design thinking in a way that truly engages people. Influenced by Shepard Fairey’s prolific use of public space with the “Obey Giant” campaign, the artists combine unique 3-dimensional pieces with large-scale production a la Jeff Koons but with an added interactive ingredient to create a fully immersive experience between audience and art.
Hungry Castle sell concepts and Cool Shit to a cross section of clients and sponsors including Adidas, HP and several International Music Festivals. Hungry Castle’s work has been exhibited in New York, the UK, Spain and Miami Beach. Hungry Castle actively work to make Cool Shit that’s always playful, public, polarizing and pop.
