RUSSIAN ART in The Hague

A regular sculpture event brings us down to Den Haag whenever it’s held.

The lovely, leafy avenue known as Lange Voorhout hosts an outdoor exhibition, under the aegis of the excellent Museum Beelden aan Zee (‘Museum of Sculpture by the Sea’).

This year’s theme is RUSSIA XXI, featuring work by some of that country’s finest contemporary artists.

Nikolay Polissky works with farmers in a small village, designing his work for the location in which it will stand and feeding inspiration back into the community.
