Brisbane Festival and South Bank Corporation present

Fantastic Planet

09 - 30 Sep
South Bank - Cultural Forecourt
Amanda Parer (AUS)

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.
