Three rodents hang with their tails clamped under a beam on the façade of the Weenapoint building on the Kruisplein at the height where you might expect to see a sign displaying the street name. Like the animals, the beam is made of bronze but has been painted to resemble wood. The sculpture is part of Manders’ larger project entitled Self-portrait as Building, which he initiated in 1986. During the week of the sculpture’s unveiling, Manders published a newspaper that was delivered door-to-door.
