A to Z. Everything in one picture. Haarlem, on Oude Groenmarkt. By Marinus Boezem, commemorating Lennaert Nijgh.
Exposure (2010), the 25 meter high, 44 tons of steel statue, by Antony Gormley at the start of the dam running right across the IJsselmeer, former Southern Sea, from Lelystad to Enkhuizen. Saw it yesterday from the venue of the event I spoke at. Turns out it’s made by the father of someone I know.
Got this amazing sculpture as a birthday gift today. “Strange Bird Totem” (nr 83 of 125) by Jacqueline Schäfer, a Dutch artist (1961). The object is made out of artificial resins. Her work is described as “showing a positive vibe for life in a complex modern society“, which fits me I guess. I had come across it a year or so ago, and liked it a lot. Elmine remembered. Thank you.
