CITIES - sculptures and land art
In 1984 Lucien den Arend was commissioned to redesign the Oranjeplein (Orange Square) and a local housing association (Gecombineerd Woningbeheer) ordered Gemini Tango. The town's bandstand used to be on the location where the work now stands, in the center of the square.
The title has a double connotation: Gemini, from the shape of the Gemini Capsule - Tango, the type of movement the two cone segments make, relating to the history of the location. The other meanings at the same time are Gemini - twins, and tango - from the saying "it takes two to tango".
