1973 – 1974

Free rein in the sculpture garden

Part of: Oxenaar

Oxenaar manages to define his course ever more clearly and relate to the ideas of Helene Kröller-Müller in his own way. This is accompanied by iconic projects, such as Spin out, for Robert Smithson by Richard Serra and Jardin d’émail by Jean Dubuffet, in which the artist is given more and more space.

‘Marking an environment as opposed to erecting “a sculpture” is Vandekop’s most characteristic trait’, writes Oxenaar in the catalogue. ‘Vandekop finds his themes […] mainly in the border regions where landscape and the manmade environment merge.’
