World-renowned art installation comes to Swansea


In a first for Swansea, a world-renowned art installation is set to land on Museum Green in the city centre as part of Taliesin Arts Centre’s 40th Anniversary Celebrations.

From the Guggenheim in Spain to the Sydney Opera House in Australia, the monumental and interactive walk-in sculptures of Architects of Air and designer Alan Parkinson have astounded audiences across the globe.

Luminarium by the Architects of Air will be available to experience between Thursday, May 30 and Sunday, June 2.

The installation has been made possible thanks to Taliesin Arts Centre, a venue and creative organisation owned, operated, and part-funded by Swansea University and Arts Council Wales.

A monument to the beauty of light and colour, Timisien is a feast for the senses. The experience will transport visitors to another world of cavernous domes, tunnels, and pods, covering half the size of a rugby pitch and creating a sense of wonder and enchantment for all ages.

Visitors are invited to wander, to sit, and to enjoy the ambience of the space. Many people find it transformative, describing it as like walking through a stained-glass window, being in a live painting, or even in a spaceship.

The luminarium is suitable for all ages, abilities, cultures, and communities, and Grown Ups Only and Relaxed Entry Sessions will be running.
