If aliens landed on Earth, you’d maybe expect them to look a bit like this exhibition. In fact, the otherworldly installations are part of ‘528 Hz Love Frequency’ by artist Chris Levine: quite possibly the most ridiculously OTT art show in the world right now.
The centrepiece of the show at Houghton Hall in Norfolk is a 25-metre-high tripod topped with a glowing orb. At night the eerie structure is surrounded by a kaleidoscopic laser show.
The show’s name comes from the ‘middle note of an ancient music scale’, and the art comes with a spooky, far-out soundtrack in which ‘the notes are said to correlate with the energy nodes, chakras, in the body’. Sure thing, bro.
Inside Houghton Hall, the old-school interior has been transformed into an exhibition space, bathed in Drive-like blue and pink neon. On display, you’ll find the artist’s best-known work, ‘Lightness of Being’, which shows Queen Elizabeth II looking pretty mellow, along with a whole load of other luminous portraits.
The show is on until December 23, so wrap up warm and head to Houghton Hall to see it for yourself. In the meantime, you can find out more here.
