Party Hats /Hoedjes / Chapeaux / Hütchen / Sombreros x 1000

On January 13th, 2014, The Holls Collective celebrated its first birthday. For the occasion of this one-year anniversary The Holls took one week to fold and cast 1000 plaster party hats. The Holls Collective became a factory.

The birthday of The Holls Collective coincided with the New Year’s reception of The Hague’s most prominent art institutions and exhibition spaces. The visitors were allowed to take one party hat home, as a party favour.
