Sculptural street-furniture elements

 The shape of these sculptures is based on different kinds of objects from public space, mixing various materials, functions and visual languages. Placed in public space these sculptures were quickly being used as seats and climbing elements. When showed in an art context they stood out so much as sculptures loosing the connection to public space. Here at Buitenplaats Brienenoord the blocks also relate to the shape of the building and are Blending in and Standing out in yet another way.

This project was kindly supported by CBK Rotterdam and exhibited at Festival of Witte de Withkwartier and Kunstvereniging Diepenheim
