Fantastic Planet
Six giant illuminated humanoid figures have invaded our planet. These giants from afar will give audiences the impression that they have just landed and are quietly and gently exploring our ‘fantastic planet’. As with Parer’s globally successful public art exhibit Intrude, these forms are not randomly placed sculptures but rather can be strategically placed to give the impression that the giant humanoids have taken over an entire land or cityscape.

Inspiration for this light installation has been taken from the 1973 Czech/ French film Fantastic Planet (French: 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 and where human beings are a feral race. This view is shared by naturalist and television presenter David Attenborough, where he has stated that humans are threatening their own existence and that of other species by using up the world’s resources. “We are a plague on the Earth. It’s not just climate change; it’s sheer space, places to grow food for this enormous horde. Either we limit our growth or the natural world will do it for us,” he told the BBC Radio Times.

Magical Lantern Festival
Thinking about going to Blackpool to see illuminations? Think again!

Our Magical Lantern Festival welcomed more than 110,000 visitors last year in London and is ready to light up Birmingham Botanical Gardens for the first time during this Christmas and upcoming Chinese New Year.

With a stunning lantern trail, all the ponds, woodlands, gardens, and pathways in Birmingham Botanical Gardens will be illuminated by handmade festival lanterns designed in China. To celebrate this 2,000-year-old Chinese festival, this event will feature some traditional Chinese lanterns such as bamboo pandas, grasshoppers, birdcages, and pagodas.

We have also brought lanterns featuring Santa and its reindeer, snowman, Christmas tree, and penguins to add more to the Christmas atmosphere! What’s more, one of the best-loved icons in Birmingham- Bullring Bronze Bull – has also been specifically re-created in lantern format, which will surely become a popular attraction in our festival.
