Giant Wooden Clothespin Sculpture in Belgium by Artist Mehmet Ali Uysal
Designed by Turkish artist Mehmet Ali Uysal. this unusual clothespin sculpture which adorns the Chaudfontaine park in the outskirts of Liege, Belgium was especially implemented as part of the Festival of the Five Seasons in 2010. The giant “clipper” appears to be holding on tightly to a mold of land and grass, its original appearance attracting the attention and curiosity of cyclists and various travelers passing by.
As enthusiastic as we are about land art and every single form of urban expression, this unusual wooden structure found on Atlas Obscura made our day. We love the way it blends in the landscape, no matter what the season and we also appreciate the element of surprise its presence brings to the park. We would love to read some of your thoughts on the installation as well.
