The exhibition, Beyond Submergence, promises “a journey through light, space and sound”. It will open on 1st July and spread over 20,000 sq ft of Bristol’s Propyard.
Squidsoup, based in Cheltenham, are known for their work in digital light technology. The group’s founder, Anthony Rowe, described Beyond Submergence as “the biggest-ever showcase of our works.”
Propyard was a former Ministry of Defence torpedo-testing facility and maintains extensive industrial spaces. Beyond Submergence – a follow-up on their Submergence show which has been exhibited more than 70 times globally – will “blur the boundaries between the works and the spaces they inhabit”.
“Bristol has always responded positively and supportively to our installations and interventions since we first showed here in 2004,” Rowe said.
“Putting the project together has been a fascinating process of discovery and rediscovery of our work – we found synergies and connections between these projects we hadn’t really noticed before.”
Squidsoup’s instalments have been featured in prominent locations worldwide, from Kew Gardens and Canary Wharf in the UK to the Sydney Opera House and the Burning Man festival in America.
The head of programming at Propyard, Sam Watts, said: “Get ready, Bristol – we’ve seen what Squidsoup are planning, and – featured in our unique space – this is going to be mind-blowing.”
