‘A chance to literally walk in the clouds’ – New York Times
The world is getting warmer – but how will this change our weather. And how might a changing climate disrupt our lives?
To celebrate Bristol’s status as European Green Capital, we have invited a conjurer of unusual weather, artist Fujiko Nakaya to the city.
Over 40 years, Nakaya has used fog as a sculptural medium. Collaborating with the elements, Fujiko’s clouds are created by water pumped at high pressure through many micro-fine nozzles. A special guest in Bristol, Nakaya’s long career has seen partnerships with a host of renowned artists and architects including Robert Rauschenberg, Trisha Brown and Bill Viola.
An exhibition of films and written provocations around climate change will accompany the artwork in Arnolfini’s gallery.
Fog Bridge is presented by In Between Time in association with Bristol 2015, European Green Capital. Subject to licensing.
Tate Modern will be hosting an Artist Talk with Fujiko Nakaya (Tuesday 17 February 2015, 6.30 – 8pm), discussing her influential explorations of nature and technology throughout her forty year career. For full details and to book, visit the Tate website.
Part of IBT15 Bristol International Festival. IBT15 is produced by In Between Time in collaboration with Arnolfini.
