BLEACH* FESTIVAL AND CITY OF GOLD COAST – DIVISION 11 PRESENT VARSITY DAZE.
A live Saturday night soundtrack from The Ruiins, TH’FIKA and Austen will set the scene for three giant illuminated humanoids to land on Varsity Parade. Created by Australian visual artist Amanda Parer, these spectacular figures will challenge the notion of scale at Bleach* Festival 2017 through an enchanting installation that explores the role of humans in the environment, titled Fantastic Planet.
“It’s a piece of art that is not only visually appealing and exciting, but also thought-provoking.” – Nina Fernandez
At first glance, Parer’s work is an unusual occurrence; however, on further inspection, audiences learn what it’s like to be vulnerable, in the way that the environment is to them.
