CITIES - sculptures and land art


The city of Delft in Holland, and in particular the SEKU school for teaching asked Lucien den Arend to do a pollard willow project for their gardens. Wim Broer of the SEKU called the sculptor and on the 11th of April 1988 the project was finished in one day A group of enthusiastic students assisted in the planting. Forty willow branches were planted in two squares - the outer one with sides of ten willows and the inner one with just the corners marked. Before the middle of April, only a few days later, the gardener took the trees out because he could not mow 'his' lawn. That was all the sculptor was told.

Ars longa vita brevis is in this case not the appropriate expression.
