Artist Profile Francesc Serra Villa

Francesc Serra Villa, along with Sean Olsen, is one of the artists whose work we will see at the next Forum event at Arcade Cardiff as we discuss the future of the pop-up exhibition and the possibility of its permanence.

Francesc Serra Villa is an architect from Barcelona. He combines his work for theatres(such as Gran Teatre del Liceu - Barcelona, La Monnaie/De Munt- Brussels and Cardiff Theatrical Services) with his own personal projects which often include set design, performance and the city in which he inhabits at the time.

Greenhouse is a research and interactive installation piece that explores connections between space, light and sound in a multi-sensorial environment.

Public are invited to follow the three parts of this week-event: 
SET UP: how the structure takes shape when balloons are inflated.
DISMANTLING: a celebration gathering people around the structure to burst the balloons.

The installation: 1300 balloons are inflated under a net. People can get inside with a light sensor on them. Depending on their position inside the structure, the sound produced will change.
Greenhouse will be presented within ArcadeCardiff on the gloomiest day of the year. This date is perfect for Arcadecardiff to offer something cheery and thoughtful to the public.
