Roundabout looking for artwork


Rotonde Julianalaan

Inzend periode:

wo, 09 mrt. 2022 / ma, 04 apr. 2022

Open call: 360°

Kunstinitiatief VHDG is looking for an fresh and eyecatching artwork that just asks to be looked at from all sides. A temporary artwork that for one month, day and and night, will be located at the Julianalaan in Leeuwarden. Do you have the artwork that will elevate the roundabout to being more than a pedestal? That will turn the idea of ‘roundabout art’ completely upside down? Or that will provide a new perspective on the public space in Leeuwarden?

The work has to be film enough to endure the life of one month on the orundabout. Surprise us – and the roundabout art viewer – with an artwork that looks into the world from these exact coordinates: 53.189021, 5.786966, and invites to be admired from every angle. We want to surprise passersby and local residents, trigger them to think and make the public space exciting.

The honorarium is for editing an existing work
