HALF-TERM SCREENINGS OF CHROMACOPIA

Chromacopia, the film created especially for the Art Lab schools programme by artist and learning specialist Kate Turner, will also be shown in CAST’s black box space during the half-term holiday. Enjoy bold and bright animations, sounds and stories and immerse yourself in a world of colour. Explore the vibrant spectrum of meanings and associations we have with colours and their role in history and nature.

Pictured above are a small selection of stills from different sections of the film. One pairs William of Orange and the orange carrot, whilst another explores the history of vermillion red: once as precious as gold and treasured by medieval artists, vermillion adorns the pages of beautiful manuscripts. It is glazed with a surprising mix of egg yolk and earwax.
