Floating Shapes

site-specific Installation
Heidelberg 2022

FLOATING SHAPES is a temporary installation by the Heidelberg-based artist Julia Benz. As part of her painterly-abstract visual world, a section of Heidelberg‘s Haptstraße will be transformed into a colourful, artistically created space for a period of five weeks. The installation offers passers-by the opportunity to perceive art in their everyday surroundings and to thereby discover and actively perceive the city from a new perspective. Art, urban space and residents encounter each other in a different dimension.

The official opening will take place on Friday, 3rd of June 2022, at 8 p.m.:
Studio Julia Benz invites you to a joint reception of the art installation during a walk along the Hauptstraße. Afterwards, we look forward to getting into conversation with you about impressions and sensations gained during a casual get-together at the Marktplatz.

Opening: 03 June 2022, 8 p.m.
The joint walk begins at Hauptstraße 110/113 and ends at the Marktplatz in front of the Heiliggeistkirche
Installation location: Hauptstraße 110 – 187, Heidelberg
Installation duration: 03 June – 10 July 2022

A big thank you goes to the project participants and all supporters who made this endeavor possible. The project was funded by the Cultural Office of the City of Heidelberg, the Heidelberg Community Foundation, and the Ministry of Science, Research, and the Arts of Baden-Württemberg.
