The heart, a universal symbol of love, intimacy, tenderness, but also of great strength and courage, is the true embodiment of the spirit of our capital. In anticipation of March 8, International Women’s Day, the sculpture „Heart“ by artist Jelena Stepanov was installed in Galerija, being at the same time a homage to this city and all its inhabitants.
The cultural and artistic initiative KvArt Belgrade Waterfront launched a unique art competition in this region, called „Become a part of KvArt“, with the aim of giving young artists the opportunity to enrich our capital with art installations, sculptures and contemporary mobiliary.
„The Heart of Belgrade“is the first art installation resulting from the competition, which fellow citizens will have the opportunity to see live. Artist Jelena Stepanov points out that this is an interesting and original sculpture that is the initiator of individual knowledge and various aspects of the collective experience of love. It connects all people through the sense of emotions, belonging, friendship, affection, generosity and compassion. Stepanov emphasized that her artwork is a reflexion of selfless love and that for her, heart means to love, and „The Heart of Belgrade“ is her gift to her belowed hometown.
Through the cultural and artistic initiative KvArt BW, Belgrade Waterfront supports and initiates projects that enrich the artistic offer of the city, brings together both established and young artists and gives a new impulse of energy to the cultural life of Belgrade.
