Kitty van der Veer Latissimus Dorsi (2019)

T/m 16 november te zien op het landgoed > Land art Playground (estate)

The Latissimus Dorsi, literally translates ‘the widest from the rear’, rises from the lush green polder. Artists Bon (Zwolle, 1980) and Van der Veer (Rotterdam, 1979) based the form on the carriers of the human body: the spine and the Latissimus Dorsi, the broad back muscle. The creature stands for strength and the restoration of the estate: once saturated farmland, now a source for new life. This raises the question whether the Latissimus Dorsi is a fossil from bygone times or a glimpse into the future? Step closer and discover the bent treasures in the wunderkammers of the spine. Are these natural history wonders or is everything made by man?
