De Drie Wijsneuzen
Collection: Courtesy the artists, Galerie Isabella Bortolozzi, Galerie Micheline Szwajcer.
This sculpture is a variation on De Drie Wijsneuzen van Erembodegem [“Wise-Noses”], a proposal for a sculpture on a roundabout near this Flemish village. Three heads look from up high, and each faces a different direction. The “Wise-Noses” observe visitors and return the glances of onlookers, and the sound of running water is one of the few things visitors will hear in the exhibition. The fountain focuses our attention towards the acts of looking or staring –important characteristics in the work of de Gruyter and Thys.
