Jazz – Soul & Shape

This year, Focus Jazz brings foreground the project


“Jazz – Soul and Form”


An exhibition with a different approach, in which you will discover the musicality of jazz in works of art shaped in bronze by the sculptor Eugen Petri.

The opening will take place on Monday, 24th of April, at 5 pm o’clock, at Tourist Information Center of the Sibiu Hall. The 19th sculptures will remain exposed for visitors at the same location during 24th of April – 7th of May.

The exhibition continues between 8 – 21st of May and the statues will be exposed for the public at The Art Gallery of UAP, in the Big Square no 12, Sibiu. The exhibition “Jazz - Soul and Form” represents the meeting between the intense feelings jazz reveals and the tangible of a hard and yet supple material, as bronze. The sculptures exposed at the exhibition are “plastic metamorphosis of the soul”, as the sculptor himself calls them.

Focus Jazz is an important project of Sibiu Jazz Festival Foundation, centered on the passion of Romanian artists. This year’s exhibition represents a praise of the sibian sculptor Eugen Petri to jazz music and to the feelings it wakes up in musicians. The bronze sculptures can be admired both Sibiu citizens, tourists and the audience of the 47th edition of Sibiu Jazz Festival.
