CITIES - sculptures and land art
Katwijk aan Zee
The city of Katwijk aan Zee is located on the coast of Holland. It has it's North Sea beaches. When the city commissioned Lucien den Arend to make a sculpture for the new Katwijk public swimming pool, he made walks on the windy beach where the waves inspired him to make a sculpture that was actually different from his other work. The material and the technique are the same, but the way of constructing the sculpture has more affinity with the reality of the existing visual world than with the reality of the geometric abstract process of designing and constructing his work.
