Artwork ‘A giant sculpture’ - 18.039

Program

Complete mission for c & s engineering.

Concept

Artwork in the natural reserve de Hoge Mouw, Kasterlee. The artwork forms a fragment of a monumental statue, suggesting a statue that was once buried under a dune. The starting point of the artwork is the archetype of a sculpture. This is transformed using a game of fine triangles in weathering steel. Thanks to its monumental scale the sculpture is also accessible from inside. This gives one a glimpse at the negative of the face and a different look at the surroundings. The sculpture was constructed using 2132 welded triangles in weathering steel. The foundations are posed on reinforced prefabricated concrete blocks. Ney & Partners was responsible for the c & s studies.
