Sculpture by Luc Deleu, metal containers, 1999

Quoted from museum.antwerpen.be:

Belgian architect/artist Luc Deleu’s motivation of wanting to erect (a) ‘container monument’, certainly amidst a sculpture park, is to jolt our perception of scale, or at least to render it more unstable… Being able… to walk around and between these pieces, we can experience them in a refreshing relationship with each other, the park and the wider environment. On the other hand, their inherent scale will provide an architectonic metaphor between the pieces of the collection in the artificial and new nature of the expansion.

The container installations may be described as mobile monuments, where both the theme and the material are universal, and thus applicable everywhere (‘orban’ monuments)…
