Kenneth Snelson | Avenue K

This characteristic sculpture in terms of workmanship by the American artist Kenneth Snelson (b. 1927 in Pendleton, Oregon) was initially installed in Hannover on a lawn near the Leine Palace in conjunction with the »Street Art Programme«. Snelson occupies himself with the effects of physical forces as a basic principle and their representability in space. Repetitions and shifts are paramount here. »Avenue K« suggests space and direction – at its current location it joins the »Sculpture Mile« on Leibnizufer with the heavily trafficked Friederikenplatz and other central city thoroughfares. » Location: Leibnizufer (Höhe Friederikenplatz)
