/ / WHAT'S ON | SWELL Sculpture Festival 2021

easterlySWELL will be popping up in Chevron Island Park, Chevron Island from 10-19 September 2021. For its second year, easterlySWELL will be connecting people, art and place within the Chevron Island community, inviting locals and visitors to come and see for themselves.

The featured artist of easterlySWELL 2021 is Atelier Sisu, an internationally renowned dynamic duo who produces artworks of impressive scale and intrigue. Interactive large-scale installations are their specialty having exhibited in Vivid, Sydney, Curiosity in Brisbane and more.

Evanescent will be mesmerizing for audiences to experience. The installation involves a series of spheres lit up from within, the iridescent bubbles change colour throughout the night. Choreographed to a reactive soundscape, they illuminate the surface of the water to create a sight never seen before. By day, the spectacle continues —the bubbles in Evanescent are made from a transparent material with a colour-reflecting dichroic film that reacts to the changing light of the sun as it moves across the sky, causing a rainbow of reflection on the water and a unique picture from every angle.

This unmissable ‘art-chitecture’ connects audiences with their environment and is designed to be truly inclusive. By emulating the ethereal quality and magic of bubbles, Atelier Sisu’s Evanescent appeals to our universal playfulness and childlike wonder, leaving us to ponder impermanence and the ever-changing human experience.

Come and see for yourself!
