Plastique Fantastique creates a blurry dreamscape at the Venice Biennale

Temporary architecture platform Plastique Fantastique distorts perception with its site-specific installation Blurry Venice – unveiled at the city’s Biennale.

Designed for the Venice Pavilion, in the Giardini area, the translucent tunnel has no defined walls or ceiling and evokes the landscape of a dream. It sits upon water, giving visitors the surreal sensation of walking on a liquid surface.

The tunnel sits between several marble ‘briccola’ sculpted by Fabio Viale, which guides the unfurling structure. Shadows and reflections dance upon the walls of the structure as visitors make their way through it.
