Location: Biltse Rading cycle path at the entrance to Park Voorveldse polder
Artist: Boris Tellegen
Utrecht, the birthplace of Gerrit Rietveld, and Amersfoort, the birthplace of Piet Mondriaan, are intrinsically linked not only by the art movement De Stijl but also by a cycle highway. Artist Boris Tellegen has designed ten tall artworks in the shape of columns along this route. Column 2 stands just before the A27 ring road near the border of Utrecht. The yellow and white column is a permanent reminder of the centenary celebration of De Stijl in 2017 and is lit up after sunset as a kind of welcoming beacon in the night.
