This October, four giant illuminated humanoid figures will invade Downtown Los Angeles and take over FIGat7th. These giants are quiet and gentle, yet curious about our fantastic planet and its inhabitants. They’ll live among us, observing the crowds at FIG while serving as the backdrop to countless selfies.
Inspiration for this light installation has been taken from the 1973 Czech/ French film Fantastic Planet (La Planète Sauvage). This stop motion science fiction film directed by René Laloux depicted a story set in an unimaginably distant future in a world of gargantuan humanoids where human beings are a feral race.
The giants are another edgy and ephemeral artwork by Australian artist Amanda Parer.
Be sure to stop by with your kids between October 30, 2019 and November 10, 2019 between 11:00 am to 11:00 pm to say hello, touch, hug, and take selfie with these giants.
FIGat7th is located at 735 S. Figueroa Street, Los Angeles, CA 90017.
