CITIES - sculptures and land art


The city of Apeldoorn commissioned Lucien den Arend to make a proposal for a sculpture to be placed on the playground of a new elementary school. One of the teachers did a project with the students, studying and photographing the changing shadows at different times of the day.

About twenty five years later the sculptor was in Apeldoorn and visited the location. The housing area used to be a large open space - now it was a myriad of narrow streets. The whole area was wooded and it was difficult recognizing the location. The school had been enlarged and the sculpture was moved to a location in front of the school. It is now situated on a small mound and, actually rather disassociated with the architecture.
