Willem de Haan
'Liberty'

Willem de Haan

Willem de Haan believes in the value of humor in his work. The work he produces functions as a kind of tribute to the funny and absurd situations that he experiences or searches for on a daily basis.

With this location-specific sculpture, Willem de Haan investigates an alternative form of bringing together two elements that are inextricably linked; a sailing boat and water. While every boat is made to float on water, the sailboat also has other formal features that can keep it afloat. Although this fulfills the basic condition of every boat, the sailboat ‘Liberty’ loses its function in this work. As a result, the boat falls into place among the other sculptures in the Museum Park.
