Elysian by Atelier Sisu

Elysian is a series of colossal inflatable illuminated arches which can be walked through and under. It aims to provide a unique spatial experience, an invitation to explore your environment in a new and playful way.

Atelier Sisu is an award-winning Sydney-based art practice, led by Peruvian sculptor and industrial designer Renzo B. Larriviere and architectural designer and artist Zara Pasfield. The pair work with a multi-disciplinary team to create experiential environments, installations and unique sculptural pieces. Their direction of work sits between the fields of art and architecture (art-chitecture), with particular focus in the realm of public art.


Renzo B. Larriviere and Zara Pasfield said:

“Elysian is a temporary public art-chitecture piece that exists as a space of reflection, immersion and joy for its audience. The name of the installation is an adjective meaning ‘beautiful or creative, divinely inspired.’ Elysian explores the movement of colour as it interacts with light, and the texture of the artwork allows the material to reflect both natural and artificial light in a unique and eye-catching way. The artwork is accompanied by a soundscape, making the space a fully immersive experience for the audience. We’re very proud to be bringing this work to Bristol Light Festival in February."
