Tomas Saraceno: Cloud City
ART:CITY | Wesfarmers Arts (ARGENTINA)
Commissioned by Perth International Arts Festival

Presenting his visionary art for the first time in Australia, distinguished artist Tomas Saraceno creates Cloud City for the people of Perth. The work is an ambitious massed form of white modules encapsulating the architectural precision and the poetically utopian ideal that is the hallmark of Saraceno's highly regarded practice.
Challenging the boundaries of earthly living, Saraceno explores the possibilities of airborne living, predicting a social space in which moving over the world can be seamless and free, and where the environment might benefit from humans inhabiting the skies.

Internationally recognised for bridging the realms of art and science, Tomas Saraceno was invited in 2009 to the space university at NASA and in the same year was awarded the Calder Prize laureate and residency at Atelier Calder in France. This follows his inclusion in an impressive list of exhibitions and projects the world over, including presentations in the Venice Biennale, the São Paulo Biennale, the Walker Art Centre and several distinguished art museums throughout Europe and the United Kingdom.

Suitability: ages 10+
