Moving art can become a masterpiece
“The sculptures were loaded at the studio in Maldegem where they were painted,” explains Patrick Kuster from Logistics, “and then each piece is loaded with its corresponding pedestal in containers. It’s very precise work that involves doing everything we can to offer the best possible protection for the sculptures.”
The ship carrying the sculptures will be in transit for a total of twenty-one days. Once it arrives in Dubai, BESIX Constructs will take over from there. “If this move goes smoothly, it will mean more jobs for Gosselin in the future,” according to Patrick, “including an art move to Sao Paolo in Brazil.”
The sculptures being moved to Dubai are named Achillea, Linaria, Knaufia, Lycopus, Silene, and Galega and all weigh between 2000 and 3000 kilos. The largest of the pieces is nearly seven meters long.
Arne Quinze is a contemporary Belgian artist, painter and sculptor. His work encompasses everything from small drawings and paintings to medium-sized sculptures and large installations.
Born in Belgium in 1971, Quinze currently lives and works in Sint-Martens-Latem. During his early career in the 1980s, he worked as a graffiti artist. He continued to question the role of our cities, and began his quest to turn cities into open-air museums.
His work quickly evolved from street art to public art, with recurring themes such as social interaction, urbanization and diversity.
