Manfred Pernice, ‘Roulette’ (2006 – 2009)

On invitation of Beyond-Leidsche Rijn the German artist Manfred Pernice made a selection of works from Utrecht’s existing collection of public art. The sculptures selected by Pernice were temporarily moved from their common spot in Utrecht to the roundabout in Leidsche Rijn. Pernice designed a flexible rail system with eight pedestals so that multiple sculptures could be shown simultaneously and be placed in different setups.

Once every six months the sculptures on the roundabout were replaced by different works as if there were a working schedule for them. Each time a work was taken from its spot in the city and placed on the roundabout, its spot in town stood empty.
