City marking S03/ A Walk along the Border
In 1990 the city of Groningen celebrated its 950th anniversary and a contemporary city gate was placed at each main entrance road of the city to mark this. Architect Daniel Libeskind developed these city gates.
City marking S03 at the Rozenburglaan is a forest of crooked posts with a wedge at about eight metres high. The work of art represents an open book with paintings of historic fragments the artist used to express that the city’s history is written by its residents.
The paintings on the work were created by Groningen artists.
