Untitled (2002) Lilian Roosenboom
Visual artist Lilian Roosenboom made this large round sphere in 2002 for the Pijnackerplein. The organic form is partly submerged in the floor. The sphere lay between the playground equipment on the square in full sun and had to move due to the redesign of the square. The bronze sculpture was placed in the Roel Langerakpark, but that too was of a temporary nature. Now the sphere, which has a line and circle-shaped structure in the surface, lies in the grass under the trees on the Noorderhaven quay.
Artist Lilian Roosenboom studied from 1982 to 1987 at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam and after that she obtained her master's at the Royal Academy of Visual Arts in The Hague. In 2002, Roosenboom made an installation of orange chairs for the CBK Utrecht in the public space and marked the N237 with a three-meter high fence with the letters 'Wegh der Wegen'. She also teaches arts at primary schools.
