Moonorooni Colourscape at Compton Verney is a revelation - not sure who enjoyed it more, me or the kids!
Moonorooni Colourscape was the perfect psychedelic accompaniment to Compton’s eye-popping Op Art exhibition Seurat to Riley: The Art of Perception. On for one-day only (Sun Aug 20) it was incredibly popular with people queuing to get in, and had sold out by mid-afternoon. I can completely understand why. It’s crazy fun!
This is a very surreal immersive art experience – getting lost in a labyrinth of inflatable tunnels filled with bright, luminous effervescent colour to a live didgeridoo soundtrack, with everyone wearing multi-coloured ponchos and barefoot (you leave your shoes at the entrance).
It was absolutely awesome – 25 interlinked chambers of colour and sound enveloping the lawn of this gorgeous 18th-century country mansion in Warwickshire, but that description doesn’t do justice to what is effectively a mind-bending art installation filled at every turn with beautiful colours, shapes and occasionally blokes playing strange musical instruments, looking super chilled. All very zen. It looks really trippy and, er, it was!
