‘Boatshed’ : Burgum : 2016
The design for a sculpture to be placed next to an aqueduct close to the village of Burgum in Friesland. Hendrik Bulthuis lived in Burgum. He was a hairdresser and in his spare time he built sailing boats in the shed behind his house. Two of these boats, the ‘BM’ and the ‘16m2’, became famous ‘build-it-yourself’ boats and are now Classes in the world of competitive sailing. The aqueduct bears his name and the project brief was for the sculpture to refer to this piece of history in one way or another.
