Untitled (2002) Lilian Roosenboom
Visual artist Lilian Roosenboom made this large round sphere in 2002 for the Pijnackerplein. The organic form is partly sunk into the floor. The sphere lay in full sun between the playground equipment on the square and had to move due to the redevelopment of the square. The bronze sculpture was placed in the Roel Langerak Park, but that was also temporary. Now the sphere, which has a linear and circular structure on the surface, lies in the grass under the trees on the Noorderhavenkade.
Artist Lilian Roosenboom studied at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam from 1982 to 1987 and then obtained her master's degree at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. In 2002 Roosenboom made an installation of orange chairs for the CBK Utrecht in the public space and she marked the N237 with a three meter high fence with the letters 'Wegh der Wegen'. She also teaches art in primary schools.
