Airship Orchestra, an ambitious custom light and sound installation, is to be sited in The Triangle in Bournemouth from 8 September until 9 October.
It is all part of GIANT OFFSITE supported by BCP Council and Bournemouth Town Centre BID, ahead of the Bournemouth Arts By the Sea Festival which runs from Friday 30 September until Sunday 2 October.
Created by ENESS, a multi award-winning art and technology studio led by Nimrod Weis, the custom light installation comprises 16 inflatables – some up to six metres – extending over a 500 square metre area. Visitors are beckoned inside the formation to bathe in volumetric sound and rhythmic light pulsation.
In the summer of 2021, British artist Stuart Semple and his studio team transformed one floor of a former Debenhams department store – now Bobby’s Bournemouth – on the high street into GIANT, the largest art centre of its kind outside London
Cllr Beverley Dunlop, portfolio holder for Tourism, Culture and Vibrant Places at BCP Council said: “Giant Gallery has put contemporary art right on our doorstep, showing international art works that most of us would never have the opportunity to see. We should not underestimate the impact of having a major artist like Stuart and his brilliant team, in town.”
Arts by the Sea’s twelfth year explores the theme of PLAY as festival goers shake off the seriousness of what has been and rediscover time and space to have fun. Each year Arts by the Sea packs Bournemouth’s public spaces with intriguing performances and installations from some of the best creative companies.
