Artist: Uwe Lassen (Halver)
Concrete is his life - to work this flowing, changeable material with his hands, to knead gives him deep fulfillment.
Object: Scissors interface- cutting steele
The scissors mark the Oberbrügge train station like a dart stuck in a target. It is meant to express regional connectedness and the interaction of different actors. The art project is not only a landmark but also a discussion stimulus for a future mobility turnaround in the region.
Location: Halver Oberbrügge train station (coordinates: 51.191563, 7.573063).
Further information: The Draisinenbahn in the direction of Halver city center also starts at the train station in Halver-Oberbrügge.
In the course of the project Scheuerpfähle fürs Volmetal, 20 artistically designed Scheuerpfähle will be erected in the four communities that have joined together to form the region Oben an der Volme. They are to point out special features in the Volme Valley, serve as landmarks or invite reflection. The X 20 hiking trail, which connects Schalksmühle, Halver, Kierspe and Meinerzhagen over a distance of 20 kilometers, is the bracket for the project.
The initiator and sponsor of the project is the VAKT art association from Halver. The NRW Ministry for Home Affairs, Municipal Affairs, Building and Equality has sponsored the project. The Minister Ina Scharrenbach personally brought the funding notice to Halver on the Saturday before Christmas 2019.
Rubbing stakes have their origin in agriculture. Farmers put them on the Weide so that cattle could rub against them. In the Volmetal Valley, the stakes are also meant to figuratively indicate points of friction. They should draw attention to special places, stimulate discussion or help to rediscover home.
