Permanent sculpture in Baron van Wassenaerpark in Ede; red bricks and black cement
210 x 40 x 432 cm

The sculpture is an abstract interpretation of a folley that disappeard 100 years before the creation of the sculpture. That folley was situated in the gardens of Castle Hoekelum. During WWII, this garden was cut into two pieces by the building of highroad A12. The owner, Baron van Wassenaer, decided to give the other half of his garden to the people as a location to build a hospital. This decision was the start of the transformation of the fairy-tale like garden into a medical zone. The installation refers to this transformation and restores the connection between both sites.

By archieval research I found one picture of the folley and its original location. When visiting the gardens I could easily dig up a few bricks of the folley. Based on the photograph and the bricks I designed this new folley and a walking route from the oroginal location to the new.
