In a recent art exhibition in Germany, visitors can find themselves literally walking on an installation.
Painter Peter Zimmermann who is renowned for finding unique ways of rendering lines on canvas uses the floor in his latest project, “Freiburg School”, at the Museum für Neue Kunst in Freiburg, Germany. With bright blue, pink, and peach resins, the floor takes on a candy-colored pond appearance spanning 1,400 square feet. Zimmermann describes his shift from canvas to floor saying, “The fact that visitors actually walk on it necessarily means that the surface will get scratched, destroyed. It develops a kind of patina as a result. Trainers leave scuff marks, high heels leave scratches. All of which are all interesting relicts… I think that these traces correspond to the brush strokes of the oil paintings.”
