Sculpture ‘VOGELVRIJ’ installed in Schmalenberg (DE)

03 Oct 2023, Posted by chris in Uncategorized

Last week marked the installation of my latest large-scale work ‘VOGELVRIJ’ in German sandstone. The two part work was placed in a wonderful green space near the town of Schmalenberg (DE). One part is a small sculptural space allowing someone to enter. On the back of the largest piece, the title can be read as braille. Not as elevated bumps but as holes that act as fensters. One can see through the language of the visually impaired and catch a glimpse of the unrestricted free space that surrounds the sculpture. Placed at a distance from the building, lies a rough piece of the same sandstone. A silent witness of time and a beacon of origin.

The sculpture will be unveiled at the end of this month. Some landscaping still needs to be done in the meantime, and afterwards the sculpture will be documented in detail. More about this project will be shared on a later date.
