IBT 15 - Enter the Storm

Date uploaded: January 19, 2015

In Between Time has announced the launch of 'IBT15 - Enter the Storm' at Arnolfini, Bristol on Thursday the 12th of February 2015. This is their 6th major biennial, but the first as Bristol International Festival. The event celebrates art as a powerful force for change, with over 50 artworks located across the city from the 12th to the 15th of February 2015.

Festival Highlights Include:

Fog Bridge (UK Premiere)

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, In Between Time have invited a conjurer of unusual weather, Japanese artist Fujiko Nakaya to the city. For 10 days from Friday the 13th to Sunday the 23rd of February, Peros’ Bridge in Bristol Harbourside will disappear behind a changing veil of fog.

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 to create immersive and contemplative experiences for audiences. Currently showing in San Francisco, Bristol’s Fog Bridge represents the UK Premiere of the artwork, and is presented by In Between Time in association with Bristol 2015, European Green Capital. Supported by Watershed and the Cabot Institute, University of Bristol.
