NINE SCULPTURES BY MICHAEL BEUTLER


A polder landscape, which is so characteristic for the province of Zeeland, is not what we usually think it is. It is not just a vast flat plain that has been reclaimed from the sea. In fact it is a landscape with highs and lows, with dikes and ditches. A landscape that is crossed by asphalt roads and that always ends at the seawall.

The nine sculptures by Michael Beutler (Germany, 1976) are intended to make visitors to the Wilhelminapolder aware of the differing elevations that give this polder its characteristic profile.
