Come to play in a magical rice field!
Inspired by Compton Verney’s nationally designated Chinese bronze collection, contemporary visual artist Aowen Jin will host an exciting interactive art event for this year’s Museums at Night festival, looking into the cultural and social impact of early Chinese civilisation on our modern lives.
In this spectacular installation, Aowen will cover the floors of our newly restored ‘Capability’ Brown chapel with UV reactive and glow in the dark rice – wonder at the significance of the grains of rice and explore them with UV torches. You’ll also have the opportunity to perform your own ritual with her magical glowing rice in our beautiful Adam hall.
