CITIES - sculptures and land art

sculptures in search of a new owner

"Between 2000 and 2006 these works were offered by me any party wishing to relocate/install them. Victory (below) has been destroyed on behalf of Ruud Vreeman, the former mayor of Zaanstad Holland; arch will most probably be installed in Rhoon Holland. There was one magnificent plan to install victory in Bleiswijk Holland for the HSL high velocity connection between Paris and Amsterdam; this plan crashed due to a committee's misconception of contemporary art."
