De mannen van Holwerd (The men of Holwerd)

'The men of Holwerd' installation by artist Linette Raven is a tribute from Sense of Place to the four initiators of the 'Holwerd aan Zee' (Holwerd on Sea) project. The installation represents a lock with running water, with the four full-length portraits on the inside of the lock. Visitors walk through a corridor of potato crates and then come face to face with these special men.

The initiators want to use 'Holwerd aan Zee' to reverse the village’s negative spiral of depopulation and economic decline. There must be a break in the sea dike in order to restore the connection between the Wadden Sea and the hinterland. Residents, water engineers, entrepreneurs, artists and nature lovers, everyone is excited and wants to work on it. A dynamic interplay between man and nature, water and land, old and new. An economic opportunity for the village and the whole region and an ecological opportunity for the mudflats.
