MAY 6-22, SkyCity

Unfortunately the Cactus Garden installation was damaged and has had to be removed. There’s plenty more to explore with over 50 other fabulous installations and artworks in City of Colour. To see more fantastic displays, click here  

This character filled giant inflatable cactus forest is a dream to come across and a joy to immerse yourself in during City of Colour this May.

The colour and shapes of the forest are both heightened and hidden by their bold 20th Century Memphis style patterning. Cactus Garden is a slap to your face, an awakening to the senses with colours and patterns which demand attention and encourage you to question the contradictions you are looking at. Where does the cactus start and end? Where did the attack of the cacti come from? Why do I want to hug a giant cactus?

A great installation for all ages, head to the SkyCity area for this installation part of over 50 that are on display in the city centre this May.
