Dripping Life

Regardt van der Meulen’s mesmerising steel sculptures posit questions about the strength and vulnerability of human life in modern society.

“A drop of water hollows a stone, not by force, but by continuously dripping” stated Ovid, the ancient Roman classical poet and author of “Metamorphoses” (43 BC – 17AD). In fact, this easily applies to life as it slowly flows and withers human life in its course, thus somehow acting like a process of metamorphosis upon human beings.
