London-based creative studio Bompas & Parr will create a fully immersive, sensory installation for the Casey Winter Arts Festival at Bunjil Place. This installation, Casey Cornucopia, will be a series of fruit weather sculptures that showcase the produce of the region. This sensory attraction will stay at Bunjil Place for 24 days, in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Winter Arts Festival. Wander through the cornucopia from June 24 to July 17.
If you’re unfamiliar with Bompas & Parr, they first rose to prominence through their expertise in jelly-making, and have since expanded to create unique and immersive experiences around the world. And now, they’re coming to Australia for the very first time.
These world-famous design leaders will create a food lovers paradise this winter. Imagine walking past massive fruit sculptures, into a swirl of world-first flavoured fog. The fruity mist, which is completely edible, will emerge from the base of the sculptures, and three different flavours will be highlighted each day. Through this installation, you’ll explore the heritage of Casey’s rich foodways.
The festivities at Bunjil Place will kick off with The Cornucopia Launch Party on June 24. There will be heaps of local produce, drinks and live performances to check out. Then, take a daily informative tour, and learn all about the experimental minds of the Bompas & Parr creative studio.
During the festival, there will be a daily, pop-up market stall food hub. Chat with local farmers, growers, artisans and more, see a demonstration, taste samples and try workshops. There will also be garden tours, and an exclusive dining program.
