Erzsike Mari (Csongrád, Hungary, 1945 – ) is a Hungarian native who has lived in the Netherlands since 1971. She studied at the Academy of Fine Art in Arnhem. Her work is characterised by primary shapes and the strength of the material used.
This statue features three folded steel zigzag shapes in blue, yellow and red. The shapes are between 2 and 4.5 metres long. The statue was made in 1985 for the open-air exhibition ‘Beelden op de Berg 4’ in Wageningen. It was then purchased by the former Agricultural College. It was originally installed near De Nieuwlanden building at Nieuwe Kanaal 11, which housed four chair groups in the field of soil and water management. The statue was restored in early 2016 and can now be found on the east side of Atlas.
