Henk van Bennekum (1946) and “Typologie van de reeks”

It must have been dozens of times that i passed a sculpture by Henk van Bennekum, but i only realized recently that these sculptures were by van Bennekum since i bought TYPOLOGIE VAN DE REEKS by this artist. The Ablasserdam sculpture i had noticed before when passing it by boat, but the others all were anonymous to me. but….. the cover of Typologie van de reeks struck me as a beautiful Wim Crouwel like cover and i bought the book and studied a little van Bennekum’s earlier works and i love them. They have a minimal quality about them and i would love to add a work to my collection. I will be on the look out for his work from now on and for those interested in his catalogue. It is available at
