Bernar Venet's Steel Arcs Place du Marché, next to the Perron, in front of la Violette in Liège

In 2004 Bernar Venet exposed his famous Steel Arcs at three different places in Liège and Seraing
- Place du Marché - Liège
- Parc de la Boverie - Liège
- Parc du Château Cockerill - Seraing

They were visible from January 2004 till May 2004.
They quickly became familiar to the Liège people and are considered by many as a magnificent symbol of the Industrial Life that has characterized Liège for centuries.

That's probably the reason why ,on September 6, 2006, the Town Council of Liège decided to buy those installed in the Parc de la Boverie.
Bernar Venet was born in Château-Arnoux-Saint-Auban, Alpes-de-Hautes-Provence, France, on April 20, 1941.
He currently lives in New York. He is considered as one of nowadays' most important conceptual artists.
He is famous for his monumental steel spirals, arcs or springs.
