Saturday 13 October, 7pm-late
Geelong Library & Heritage Centre
The international phenomena White Night is coming to Geelong on Saturday 13 October, and Geelong Library & Heritage Centre will host the amazing art installation Phantasmagoria by artist Christopher Langton.
A group of giant anime-inspired characters will find their way into the Dome. This group of disparate characters is on a rescue mission – a la Toy Story – working out a cunning plan to help a friend or colleague escape the fortress. Or could it be just the opposite? Whichever it is, we will never know.
Phantasmagoria means "a sequence of real or imaginary images like that seen in a dream,” so there’s certainly a fantasy element to these larger than life characters.
Christopher Langton is a Melbourne-based artist who creates large sculptures, including inflatables, that are often colourful, humorous and pop-inspired. Using toys and then scaling them up for effect, he changes the relationship between the viewer and the enlarged toy so that a lot of the time the objects become slightly sinister as well.
