Fantastic Planet, South Bank
9 September - 30 September
Five giant humanoids have landed in Brisbane from a distant planet to quietly observe humans and gently explore our ‘fantastic planet’.
The inspiration for artist Amanda Parer’s out-of-this-world light installation came from the 1973 Czech/French animated science fiction film by the same name. The film depicts a story set in the future in a world inhabited by gargantuan humanoids and where humans are a savage race.
The 40-feet humanoids will live along South Bank Parklands, Brisbane International Airport Terminal and QPAC, disrupting the ‘usual’ scenery and encouraging festival-goers to reflect on how they think about their art, their city and the world in which they live.
