Don’t neglect me

The De Hals sculpture (2000) in Rotterdam is by John Blake. The white polyester artwork stands on a concrete platform and is 2.30 meters high. It is an enlargement of a display that jewelers use in shop windows. Which explains the title as the neck. Actually the platform is part of a sewer bunker.

The De Hals scultpure faces towards the famous Witte de Withstraat in Rotterdam where Melly Shum is. Also nearby is the Elevazione artwork by Giuseppe Penone. The neck artwork by John Blake is part of the famous Rotterdam Westersingel Sculpture Route. Here is the location!
