CITIES - sculptures and land art
The Municipal Museum of Dordrecht financed Lucien den Arend and made it possible for him to reconstruct his pollard willow project after the museum had demolished it. He was given four a choice out of four islands in or near Dubbeldam, an ancient village now a part of Dordrecht. All of the little islands appealed to him, so he proposed to realize four projects - one on each island. Assisted by two of his students from the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague he made a circle, square, triangel and a cross - basic Euclidian geometric shapes. And because Kazimir Malevich based his Suprematism on elementary geometric shapes, the sculptor dedicated these projects to him.
