Emmasingel work of art
Emmasingel work of art

Groningen

The relationship between surface and spaces plays an important role in the work by Danish artist Per Kirkeby, and this also applies to this untitled work at the Emmasingel. The work consists of two rows of six columns connected crosswise as well as lengthwise using arch constructions. Wall surfaces are applied between some of the columns in such a way that a wall is positioned opposite every opening, resulting in a spatial line pattern of open and closed sections and changing light and shadow.

Sitting lumps
Sitting lumps

Groningen

In the 1970s the narrowing of the gap between art and the public was among artist René de Boer’s main themes. This encouraged him to make appliances of his sculptures instead of merely objects to look at, and these sitting lumps are an example of this. Below the sculpture are swivel casters and nylon slide plates that allow the work to be moved, and because the sculpture hinges in the centre its shape can change. The work of art is therefore also an object to look at, lie on and play with. In 1975 Zitknobbels (Sitting Lumps) was at the Grote Markt for a month after which the municipality of purchased it and placed it in the Paddepoel shopping centre. In the late 1990s the sculpture was moved to the Selwerd shopping centre, and since 2011, the bronze bench is located on the Beren shopping square.

The Changing Same
The Changing Same

Groningen

In the centre of the pond in front of the Duisenberg building and the Zernike complex are the contour lines of an immense human figure. The sculpture is six metres high and made from stainless steel. A powerful fountain spouts water up within the contours of the sculpture, as a result of which parts of the figure are hidden from view. The spurt of water reaches above the shoulder before it turns into a hazy spray. The title of the work refers to ‘something that changes and yet stays the same’. The changing same symbolises the research in the Spatial Sciences faculty. According to artists Maree Blok and Bas Lughhart the water from the fountain is the backbone of the human figure and a metaphor for the ability of humans to change themselves and their environment time and time again without losing themselves.

Tschumi pavilion
Tschumi pavilion

Groningen

In 1990, the Groninger Museum held the ‘What a Wonderful World’ event, for which five architects were asked to design a pavilion for showing videos. The pavilions were designed at various locations in the city, and two of them have been retained: Rem Koolhaas’s bus stop on the Emmaplein square and this one on the Hereplein square, designed by Bernard Tschumi. The pavilion consists of an elongated glass and steel construction placed on a concrete foundation causing it to slant considerably: on one side the pavilion rises two metres above the ground. The glass construction includes walls at right angles, dividing the space in five parts. Since 1995 the Tschumi pavilion has been managed by the Tschumipaviljoen foundation. Artist’s projects are realised here on a regular basis, with an emphasis on work using modern media.
