CITIES - sculptures and land art
Albrandswaard commissioned me to make a proposal for the reconstruction, in Rhoon, of a sculpture I originally produced for The Hague. But just before it was to be put into place, the public works department notified the advisory committee that the intersection over which the arch was to be placed would undergo a reconstruction and would be enlarged. The two large curved pipes and other parts were stored for six years and returned to me afterwards.
I found Rhoon, in Albrandswaard, interested in reconstructing the work. Rhoon is a rural town neighboring the world's largest harbor, Rotterdam. Together with surrounding towns it forms the new municipality called Albrandswaard.

After this location was not approved after some years of inactivity, there were four more which were studied. At the time of this writing the fifth location may have an actual chance of success.
