Inspired by our todays visit to the Caldic collection of Joop van Caldenborgh in Wassenaar and because of my fondness for sculpture , the next 10 blogs will be devoted to Artist and sculptures. van Caldenborgh has been collecting great sculptures for more than 30 years now and collected a world famous collection which is on show on application on his estate in Wassenaar. One of the artist to be found there is Yaacov Aagam. An artist from Israel who has been known in the Netherlands for over 40 years now because of his show in the Stedelijk Museum ( catalogue available at www.ftn-books.com). His sculpture on the lawn of the Caldenborgh estate is particularly impressive because when you see it it appears to move because of its construction . A kinetic sculpture that does not move itself, but moves because of the movement of the spectator.
