...a dazzling maze of winding paths and soaring domes where Islamic architecture, Archimedean solids and Gothic cathedrals meld into an inspiring monument to the beauty of light and colour.
A gigantic inflatable artwork has been unveiled in New Plymouth as part of the Taranaki International Arts Festival.
More than a hundred square meters in size the ‘Exxopolis’ is a network of winding tubes and soaring domes.
The experience of standing inside has been compared to going inside a cathedral or a mosque, or an artery or spaceship.
Wallace speaks to Shanti Freed, the exhibition manager for Architects of Air.
Exxopolis will be on display at four different festivals
- Taranaki Intertational Arts Festival
- Christchurch Arts Festival
- Auckland Live
- Tauranga Arts Festival
