Untitled (1996) Ineke Visser
1997 opened the third part of the Alexandrium shopping center, also known as Alexandrium III or Woonmall. The parking space is located on the roof of the building, which can be reached via a circular driveway. An 45 meter high white steel artwork has been placed in the middle of this driveway, made by the Rotterdam artist Ineke Visser. Visser designs large abstract landmarks in which no dimensions are shunned. She may have been asked for this assignment by the owner of the building, because this work must stand out and be recognizable to shoppers. The three steel surfaces can therefore be seen from the highway. A little further down the road there is another work of art on the square at the Alexandrium I shopping center (the former Oosterhof), namely the bright red Curled ribbons.
The Rotterdam artist Ineke Visser (The Hague, 1947) attended the art academy in The Hague, in the direction of sculpture and monumental. She has designed various large sculptures for inside and outside, working with large metal volumes, both figurative and abstract. On the roof of the Alexandrium shopping center is a wire sculpture of three planes by her hand.
