Five otherworldly beings have occupied the planet SIGNAL this year. These giant figures
created by Amanda Parer seem to have just landed on earth, and now explore their
surroundings with silent interest and awe. They curiously touch the ground, timidly observe
the activity around them from behind a corner, or roll delightedly across the soft grass. At
first glance they appear fearsome, but their viewers soon recognize them for the kindhearted
visitors they are.
This monumental installation is inspired by the 1973 Czech/French animated film of the
same name (known in Czech as Divoká planeta). It represents an incomprehensibly remote
future in which our planet is settled by giant futuristic beings, where humans are merely wild
aborigines no more sophisticated than creatures of the forest.
