Giant Sticky Man Toys Climb German Buildings


These colorful, blobby creatures, called Flossis, are taking over Germany! Designed by artist Rosalie, the installation of playful figures can be seen climbing the exterior walls of many buildings in Dsseldorf, Germany, including The Roggendorf House. The decorative figures add a fun element along The Rhine, as viewers observe the invasion of the human-like forms who fearlessly climb the walls with their suction cup hands and feet. Upon reaching the top of the building, the happy clan of sculptures are placed standing or sitting, with legs hanging over the edge of the roof, happily waving down to the audience of passers-by below.

The installation features vibrant reds, oranges, yellows, blues, and greens, and the sculptures come in various large and small sizes. They are each made out of resin and can withstand extremely cold temperatures. According to her biography, Rosalie is “one of the most famous and most accepted artists in Germany.” With all kinds of exhibitions under her belt, her impressive skills are evident in the unique structure and format of this cheerful installation.
