A walk-in video/light installation creates a poetic oasis of light and color in the midst of the teeming city. Poems and text fragments from the Romantic are integrated into the abstract, pictorial imagery of Geist's work, together with portraits, sculptures and paintings from the same era. Which would not be complete without the well-known statue of "Ariadne on the Panther", which is closely related to the history of this place.
The installation invites visitors to partake – to walk through the park and enjoy the romantic imagery displayed on the trees, the ground - in the transparent haze. The staging underlines the original destiny of this place as an oasis of beauty, art, nature and urban life amidst the historic ramparts.
Philipp Geist is an internationally renowned light artist. His video mapping installations transform architecture into moving light sculptures that challenge the viewer's perception of two- and three-dimensionality. His works include illumination of the statue of Christ in Rio de Janeiro, the staging of the Azadi Tower in Tehran and the Royal Palace of Bangkok, as well as illumination of the Cologne Cathedral for New Year's Eve 2016.
