Yvonne Visser

Along the drive of Hof van Saksen, there are magnificent bronze statues from Yvonne Visser. These are a selection of her oeuvre, where dance, movement and human relationships are paramount. The statue exhibition can be seen along the drive to the main building Havezate. 

Humans are central in the work of Yvonne Visser, although she seldom depicts this. The reason that she depicts animal figures arises from the fact that animals have so many wonderful guises, which gives the artist more expressive possibilities.

It speaks of love. Love for the material, love for humans and life, also love for the hares, bears, frogs, hippos, elephants or birds which are her subjects. Portrayed increasingly subtle and with a feeling for realism and humour. They have an emotional charge that alternately enchants, surprises or draws a smile from the viewer. Art with real content that is also beautiful. 

Yvonne Visser is known for her works in semi-public spaces, including Sofie who dances along the A28 motorway near exit 35 Tynaarlo and the Bears and the Dog in Martini Hospital in Groningen.


The building Havezate is a combination of the design of Cor Kalfsbeek and the furnishing by interior designer Piet Boon, and it offers absolute luxury and quality. The spectacular gardens that surround the main building have been specially designed by Piet Oudolf. You will find many facilities, such as the design swimming pool, restaurants, Spa & Wellness Centre, and the Business Centre - something for everyone.
