Present (for a Giraffe)

2004, Wool, life-size for a giraffe (approx. 3 x 2 m)

Essentially knitting is a warm-hearted activity with the aim of sending love to family members or lovers.
The artists completed the knitting of a super large life-sized sweater for a 4-meter-tall giraffe in a zoo.
In winter they kept knitting the long-necked turtle-neck sweater stroke by stroke and day after day for two months, although they knew that the giraffe would never accept the sweater or wear it.
