Fantastic Planet

Fantastic Planet


The 1973 Czech/French science fiction film “Fantastic Planet” was the inspiration for Australian artist Amanda Parer to create this light installation of giant humanoids.

These giants from afar will give the festival goers the impression that they have just landed and are cautiously exploring our 'fantastic planet', both on the ground and on the rooftops. How do these creatures make you feel? Do they change the way you look at your environment?

The humanoid forms are in fact inflatables made out of white nylon, inflated by air blowers and internally illuminated by LED lights.

This event takes place on Victoria Gate, Sidney Street and Briggate.

Presented in association with Victoria Leeds.
