11th Biennial Middelheim Antwerp - 1971 American and Dutch sculpture.

the 11th Middelheim Sculpture Biennial in 1971.

It was early spring when Herman Swart, who had been director of the Nederlandse Kunststichting telephoned me whether I had a sculpture available for exhibition in the coming Middelhein Biennale; art historian Emile Langui from Belgium had seen a photograph of my bronze discoid form I. It was only about 30 centimeters tall but I let him think it was just below two meters. I had photographed in such a way that it could have been any size. I told him I did and started making the plaster model within a week. Before the summer I had it cast in bronze and finished it in time to be transported to Antwerp. Swart had also asked me whether I had any ideas about how to install the Dutch sculpture section in the old park; as I had little experience in installing large open air exhibitions at the time I let that go. My colleague, Eugène Terwind, installed sculptures in a special garden created by him for the occasion. It looked like a park in an urban space.
