Diereneiland at the Amelandseplein

Otto Snoek

The islet in the pond of the Amelandseplein in Charlois was transformed into one earlier this year animal sanctuary by visual artists Karolien Helweg and Ruben La Cruz. After a 'tour' along the islands in Amsterdam's city parks, 13 scrap wood 'wild' animals found a new place on the south. The relatively unexplored island area in the pond of Amelandseplein has temporarily been designated as a 'work of art in public space'. Educational activities are organized around the on Wednesday afternoons Animal Island in collaboration with schools in the area. It Animal Island was commissioned by BKOR and can be seen until the end of 2018.
