a sculpture for the city of Nijmegen

In 2017 Andreas convinced the judges with his work ‘Viewpoint’ and won the design competition for ‘Nijmegen along the river’. With the same design he became runner up for winning the public prize.

For his work ‘Viewpoint’, Andreas designed an enlarged existing Roman mask. The mask symbolizes the historic face of Nijmegen, which is the oldest Roman city of the Netherlands. The reconstruction of the mask will be built up to almost 6 meters high and should be used as an observation point, form which you can see the skyline of Nijmegen.

Up until now many sponsors are supporting the project. In February 2019 the construction process of the sculpture started in Nijmegen’s shipyard Gelria. On the 11th of 2019 ‘Viewpoint’ was shipped along the Waal river from Nijmegen to Millingen aan the Rijn where the last part of the construction process continued. The sculpture is set to be finished April 2020.

On April 10th at 14:00 ‘Viewpoint’ will be revealed and symbolically handed over to the mayor of Nijmegen. A few days prior to this event, the huge mask will be transported across the Waal river by boat to its final destination: the island of Veur-Lent, that lies opposite Nijmegen. The transport will be an exceptional happening so it will be a great opportunity to capture on screen.
