Stuck: RedBall is smashed between two buildings in Taipei, China
It’s guarded the gates of Norwich Castle and scaled the Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi.
The RedBall has become a public spectacle in every one of the cities it’s rolled into in far-reaching

That was artist Kurt Perschke’s exact intention when he was commissioned to build the giant 250lb
sculpture in 2001.
Eleven years later, his traveling art project is set to invade the UK.
