‘Wheel’ : Waalwijk : 2017
Right through the province of Brabant, a line can be seen. It’s straight as an arrow. It is a former railroad, made in the late 1800’s, to give local industry a boost by connecting this region to the port of Rotterdam. After years of decline, it recently became a scenic (albeit very straight) path for walking and biking. In 2015, I designed a large scale sculpture as a contribution to a scheme to liven up the route with works of art. The brief asked for a sculpture that would refer to the history of the path and the railroad it once had been.
