DESCRIPTION

World Square was home to ‘The Ratrobats’, 8 acrobatic rats celebrating Lunar New Year’s ‘Year of the
Rat’. VANDAL was commissioned to collaborate on this campaign; working on creative, ratrobats
sculptures, print and animations.

In association with Sydney Lunar Festival, the custom-made statues feature 8 different positions inspired
by the ancient tradition of Chinese acrobats and performers. While the Master Rat welcomes visitors,
other Rat statues are performing a handstand, balancing pinwheels, juggling on a unicycle and even one
suspended high above the Square. Another giant Rat balances on a large chair, and will interact with
visitors, perfect for that Selfie moment. Each rat even has their own name and personalit
