In the spring of 2012, the leisure beach on the coastline of Maasvlakte 2 will open to the public. This beach is the 'successor' to the very popular Slufter Beach, which was closed to allow for the construction of Maasvlakte 2.
Elements that are eligible for an artistic treatment include the design of the beach entrances, the signage of said entrances and/or the parking lots, seating elements, a look-out, etc. The artists are welcome to submit other proposals. The ambition is to realise a permanent and functional work that invites the audience to interact, that enhances the vast expanse and high-tech appearance of the area and that above all heightens the pleasure of a trip to the beach.
The following artists have been asked to submit a draft design:
> Margot Berkman (Netherlands)
> Hendrik Jan Hunneman (Netherlands)
> Jan Konings (Netherlands)
> Patrick Tuttofuoco (Italy)
