She Changes “The Anemone”, Matosinhos

Conceived in 2005 by the North American artist Janet Echelman, this sculpture is characterized by never being static. In fact, the wind constantly changes the arrangement of the red and white mesh that gives it shape, which also explains the piece’s name “She Changes”. However, its shape and colors greatly contributed to its popular “Anemone” designation as an appropriate term that immediately relates the sculpture to its coastal and maritime location, as well as the author’s original idea of representing traditional fishing gear and fish traps to evoke the local fishing communities.
