About the artwork

This four-metre-tall bronze work depicts two figures sitting on a lifeguard chair. The piece weighs 570 kg and stands on a platform in Dir. Gen. Willemspark, near the Duinbergen seafront. Aurora Cañero's sculptures are best known for their dream-like and curious quality. The use of the pedestal as a rhetorical element of the work is particularly significant.
