Pruik

Beaufort Location: Water Tower, Waterkasteelstraat, Blankenberge

Maria Roosen

°1957, Oisterwijk, the Netherlands 

An important element in the work by this Dutch artist is the use of coloured hand-blown glass with which she makes transparent balls or bubbles, for instance. But she does not focus on glass art only. Also sculpture, ceramic art, audio-visual media and installations are part of her work. With Pruik (Wig), Roosen adorned the water tower in Blankenberge with a ‘wig’. This ‘wig’ consists of some 120 kilometres of orange plastic rope, which is often used on vessels. The water tower had the same appearance for many years and was now suddenly given a totally different look.
