Moving art can become a masterpiece

Artist Arne Quinze contacted Gosselin to move several large sculptures to the international exposition that is being held in Jebel Ali (Dubai). A total of six containers will be required for the move.

“The sculptures were loaded at the studio in Maldegem where they were painted,” explains Patrick Kuster from Logistics, “and then each piece is loaded with its corresponding pedestal in containers. It’s very precise work that involves doing everything we can to offer the best possible protection for the sculptures.”

The ship carrying the sculptures will be in transit for a total of twenty-one days. Once it arrives in Dubai, BESIX Constructs will take over from there. “If this move goes smoothly, it will mean more jobs for Gosselin in the future,” according to Patrick, “including an art move to Sao Paolo in Brazil.”

The sculptures being moved to Dubai are named Achillea, Linaria, Knaufia, Lycopus, Silene, and Galega and all weigh between 2000 and 3000 kilos. The largest of the pieces is nearly seven meters long.
