Marta Pan (1923-2008)
The sculptures of Marta Pan are organic, often wooden forms related to human dimensions and inspired by the themes ‘balance’ and ‘the hinge point’. They serve as a source of inspiration for choreographers. The ‘floating swan’, as the work is also known, links three elements: the museum, the garden and the lake. The spot that has been created has its own powerful identity. The sculpture, the icon of the garden, is an invitation to go from inside to outside towards sculpture-nature. The object moves on the water with the grace of a dance.
The line of the edge of the lake was designed to relate to its surroundings and the movement of the sculpture. The lake is enclosed by a cultivated lawn with two oaks. In spring, there are buttercups, dandelions and cuckoo flowers creeping through the grass. In summer, countless water boatmen can be seen on the water.
