on ArtTube: Re-defining Balance

Marieke van der Lippe made a documentary (2016) about the making process of the eight-meter-high fountain, Re-defining Balance by Anne Wenzel for the Rechtbank in Zwolle. In its scale it is a unique sculpture, both in its nature and in the use of ceramics and concrete. Marieke van der Lippe closely follows its development for more than four years. The creation of such a monumental image requires enormous commitment from all parties involved; not only professional knowledge, but also superhuman commitment, perseverance and immense patience are needed. The film shows the battle with the material and the victory over it.

This film was made possible with a financial contribution from CBK Rotterdam and the District Court of Overijssel.
