About the artwork

In 1997 the third part of the Alexandrium shopping center was opened, also known as Alexandrium III or Woonmall. The parking lot is located on the roof of the building, which can be reached via a circular driveway. In the middle of this driveway is a 45 meter high white steel artwork, made by the Rotterdam artist Ineke Visser. Visser designs large abstract landmarks that do not shy away from dimensions. She may have been asked for this assignment by the owner of the building, because this work must stand out and be recognizable for the shoppers. The three steel surfaces can therefore be seen from the highway. Incidentally, there is another work of art of hers on the square at the Alexandrium I shopping center (the former Oosterhof), namely the bright red Curled ribbons.
