We are so lucky. This amazing 45 clown sculptures came to Rotterdam, long way from Ugo Rondinone’s studio in NY! The other day I took my younger son Robert and we went to the museum of modern art Boijmans to see them up close . 
My son, wasn’t really sure how to behave….he was a bit scared but he was very intrigued…
” mom, are they real ? mom, are they dead ? can I touch them ? can I sit next to him ? “ 
I didn’t even want to say anything. I whispered, not knowing why. Their closed eyes asked for sort of magic silence. I love their amazing colourful costumes with glitter and contrasting socks , like they would like to get all our attention, even though I could feel their loneliness…

 If you plan to visit Rotterdam, the exhibition is open till 29 May. I highly recommend it.
