Monumental statues

 

Ode to roads and waterways

Ministerie van Verkeer en Waterstaat – 2002

The statue expresses the importance of advanced road and water construction with the environment in mind. Motion and speed are suggested, resulting in an exciting playfull shape in steel.

The place

Tunnels, viaducts, curves, guardrail and marks on the road have led to a vital game of lines. The organic is depicted by blue and green glass in the form of water and trees. In colourful red / ochre yellow glass one can recognize a human profile, but also the lines of a fast car.

The artwork is in a sleek monumental hall, but goes against the architecture with a playful game of lines, which occupies the space.

Height: 220 cm, widht 90 cm and depth 120 cm. Material: stainless steel and glass.

Ritmische sculpturale tekening

Herren und Sklavenmoral

Municipality Zwolle – 1995
IIn Zwolle, she places a floating sculpture in the canal. Seven geometric shapes surround seven heads with a selection of headwear. They refer to different ranks, social classes and positions of power. The crown is of course the highest. A paper hat, one that you might put on at a birthday party if you wanted to be the centre of attention for once, is the amusing opposite; the lowest. This is where her work has a social dimension. She tells of power and impotence, of Herren und Sklavenmoral, and shows how people stay in their place within the specific configuration of their society.

Stainless steel, bronze and aluminum. Heads copper.  Ø 900 centimeter

Element Water

Municipality Wognum – 1994
The sculpture, Element Water (1994), next to the freeway A7 near the city of Wognum in the Netherlands, is one of the first monumental sculptures in which glass was used.
