Archimedes in Wonderland Berkman en Janssens tunnel Utrecht 2001

Measurements: 1500 m2 of decorated tiles, 200 m2 of painting on the ceiling

 

A bicycle tunnel as a fairy tale.

 

While pedaling through the 60-meter-long tube, cyclists can feed their imagination with the decorated ceramic tiles and paintings from the artist duo Berkman and Janssens. The artwork is based on the inventions of the Greek mathematician Archimedes and the adventures of Alice in Wonderland.

 

The opening was done by mr. J. van Zanen, Alderman of Public Space, Municipality of Utrecht.

 

From the hands of the artists, Mr. J. van Zanen, the first copy of the screen print ‘Archimedes in Wonderland’ specially made for this exhibition. The queen, the cat, the man with the hat and the rabbit, they all lift the glass with us on 18 December 2001 in the City Hall in Utrecht.
