On the last weekend of September the popular White night festival lit up Bratislava for the fifth year, attracting tens of thousands of art lovers to the capital’s streets. The riverside and historical city routes showcased over thirty works – including world premieres – and featured spatial/lighting installations, workshops, films, and movement performances.
Visitors could marvel at the city’s artistic sights from noon on Friday until Sunday night, with the water route from River Park to Eurovea City including various comic book surprises and futuristic experiences. British creative duo Filthy Luker and Pedro Estrellas invigorated urban architecture with original monumental 3D street art. Their creations included a space rocket ‘touched-down’ on River Park, Warehouse no. 7 captured by a mythical octopus’s huge tentacles, and two curious eyes on a Eurovea waterfront tree.
At River Park, visitors could also admire a 3D model of the first Slovak skyscraper, while at Zuckermandel – in addition to the permanent Circle Head installation – visitors enjoyed the popular “space” String climbing frame by Austrian Numen/For Use. The festival’s general partner is developer JTRE.
