    Zagara Art project: Speedboat Z414

 Speedboat Z414
ZAGARA
 
 
. . . The municipality of Zoetermeer [the Netherlands] Commissioned me for creating a work of Art in the Public Space of shopping center Vijverhoek district Driemanspolder. Characteristic to the shopping center is the cozy, open and green impression it make on you. That's because the pond and the park behind it are very well integrated: the square turns into stairs that runs into the friendly pond.
For this commission I had to use the leftover granite blocks from the shopping area for the renovation in 2013.
WHAT if something had happened which no one knows exactly HOW or WHEN? That's where Speedboat Z414 turns in.
The official unveiling of Speedboat Z414 was done by Hans Haring, alderman for Culture of the city Zoetermeer . . .
