Nicolas Cage in a cage

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]A giant inflatable sculpture of Nicolas Cage in a cage.

 

It was a meme come true when Hungry Castle presented Nicolas Cage in a cage to over 30,000 people at Splendour in the Grass in Australia. Their largest stand-alone sculpture to date explores the polarising reaction the Hollywood actor attains online.

His freakish facial expression is a reference to ‘You don’t say?’ meme from the 1988 movie Vampire’s Kiss. The ridiculousness of the internet is brought to life as participants come face to face with a giant effigy of Nicolas Cage inside a bouncy striped cage.

 

Designed to dwarf the audience and demonstrate the potency of playful interaction. People of all ages are encouraged to get in the cage, be active and explore their feelings towards him. Subsequently each individual invents their own personal experience and story. Jump him, punch him, hug him, kiss him, love him or hate him, no one will ever break Nicolas Cage. Undeniably it’s an artwork that reflects the internet and the internet’s effect on pop culture.

 

This monumental work of public art gained global media attention from the likes of The Huffington Post, The Guardian, The Independent and The Creators Project to name a few. Many more participated in the social media activity of swapping their face with the face of Nicolas Cage to promote awareness of the sculpture. With the World Tour now fully underway, Nicolas Cage has been formally invited to get in the cage with Nicolas Cage. You don’t say? Yes. We do say.

 

Nicolas Cage in a cage is ready to rumble at your festival/event. Put the bunny back in the box and book him now.
