SITE SPECIFIC SCULPTURE AND PUBLIC SCULPTURE

how site specific sculpture relates to public sculpture

Site specific art relates to the urban space or natural setting in which it is placed - in scale as well as in the used materials and color. Site specific art is in fact a permanent installation. The term public art pertains more to the fact that it is accessible to the public; site specific art can be public art, but it can also be installed in remote places, or it can even be inaccessible - depending on the choice of the artist. But, if remote places are more or less accessible to the public, we can still call the art, which has been installed there, Public Art.

Lucien den Arend has been making site specific and public sculptures for more than thirty five years. His site specific works have been realized in fifty five cities, mainly in Europe.

The links on the right will take you to his site specific- and public sculptures; they were made for the public domain. Making public art has been his main activity throughout his career as a sculptor.

View the proposals for site specific sculptures and environments - including works which were not realized.
The scale models which he has made for many of his site specific art projects are now on this site.
