Land art and site specific sculpture in the urban setting. Environmental sculpture is an art form which uses the environment as its material. Concrete art is, like any art form, human made and is therefore geometric in essence. Public art is art which can be viewed and accessed by the public.

reposing Gaea - 2012 - 1768x1250x442cm - temporary installation in Albrandswaard/Rhoon, Holland - photo©Jo Polak.

a reclining sculpture

When a sculpture has not been installed yet and its position has not yet been realized, it can sometimes be an inspiration for other works. Here Gaia, as I later named her, is awaiting the local decision makers to agree to the sculpture's final erection. In this position it revealed an inspiring new perspective on new possibilities to me. On this location, where in 2013 the green buffer zone will have been created, she awaits a better future for the land on which she lies. Gaea, or Gaia, was to be her name - reclining Gaia the Goddess, mother of the earth.

She was lying in this position for more than three months between March 20 until July 11th 2012 when she was installed on her two legs and she became the sculpture which was initially intended for this location. I hope that - in the future - there will be an opportunity for me to recreate her in this position on another location.
