Linear Sculpture - Sculpture in Lines

In my first environmental projects - in this case a land art project in Holland in 1971 - I combined elements from my Dutch surroundings. This Walburg project consisted of earth and grass, asphalt, a high tension pylon, pollard willows, a sculpted bronze element and a straight curb stone line, which formed the projection of all these elements.

Curb forms a diagonal line in my first land art project.

The meandering and serpent-like dike, which is to the left of this photograph, projects itself as a line depicted- and executed relocating the old curbstones of the street behind my studio. In 1971 my Walburg land art project was situated on the edge of the urban landscape. The housing we see on this image, was built around 2000. Before that there were farmers growing vegetables on the fields on the other side of the city limits of Zwijndrecht town.
