Commissioned by: BFO – Niek van Der Sprong productions,. Location: Park Wezenlanden Zwolle. Period: 2007
Art project ‘ Liberty is in the Eye of the Beholder’ A collaboration with: Mark van Enk, Gina Draaisma. This time we translated the national, somewhat dull 5th of May theme ‘Freedom, a fundamental right and safety’ into a large and universal image: the Statue of Liberty!
‘Ones freedom is another man’s burden’ .
We have therefore blindfolded ‘Liberty’ . Thus she will be blind to other views, injustice or will want to be blind like Lady Justice so that she can weigh, consider and weigh her arguments carefully.
Liberty was enhanced by Michel van Bulk’s artwork entitled ‘Schimmen’.(shades)
