Into The Great Wide Open

Written by . Filed under Exhibitions. Tagged . No comments.

Open: Friday 03/09/2010 to Sunday 05/09/2010
Location: Vlieland, a small island on the coast of The Netherlands

The majority of the landscape of the island consists of dunes, but there are some wooded areas and small meadows. A large part of the island, the western part, consists mainly of sand and is referred to as the ‘Sahara of the North’. After collecting almost 400 kilo’s of plastic during a sailing expedition across the Atlantic Ocean earlier this year, Plastic Reef will be shown for the first time in the Netherlands after it’s biggest growth curve ever. Some local trash was added to the sculpture as well, completing the North Atlantic Reef.
