Balancing on the interface between land and water, a 25-metre tall squatting man looks out over the Markerlake from the city of Lelystad. In the open landscape this human figure is a landmark in the Flevopolder. With "Exposure", the British artist Antony Gormley (1950) made the sixth Land Art Project in Flevoland since the start of it in 1977.
The sculpture is made out of 1.8000 unique steel bars with a total weight of 44.000 kg and was placed her in 2010.
It is quite impressive to walk between his feet and have a look up.
At a foggy day like yesterday he seems to fade away.
As with many sculptures people make up their own name for it and this one is called the "Poepende Man" (defecating Man) which is an appropiate nickname I think.
