The Welsh comedian opens up about his first tour in seven years.
Following hugely successful runs in Brussels and Naples, it’s been confirmed that Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience will open in York this summer.
The experience will open at York St Mary’s on Friday 5 July 2019, running until Sunday 5 January 2020.
The highly immersive experience will enable visitors to step inside the paintings, world and mind of the highly regarded 19th century artist.
The multimedia experiences brings Van Gogh’s remarkable creations to life through projections, recreations and interactive elements.
The 35 minute 360 degree experience will bring over 200 of his most recognisable works to life with digital animation and an emotive soundtrack.
Mario Iacampo, Creative Director and Founder of Exhibition Hub is the man behind the project comments: “For so many people, art is inaccessible – paintings hung in galleries where you understand little context about the work. This immersive experience changes that completely, with some of the most famous pieces of art in the world not only shown on a larger than life scale, but actually bringing the images to life with movement that isn’t confined to the edges of a picture frame.”
He continues: “Whether you are five years old or 85, this gives you a remarkable, colourful and engaging insight into Van Gogh’s life and artistic perspective using cutting-edge technology and world-class digital animation.”
Born in Zundert, Netherlands in 1853, Van Gogh produced over 2000 works throughout a short and tragic lifetime marred by mental illness. After his suicide at the age of 37, the painter became hugely well-known and is now regarded as one of the most influential impressionist artists in history.
His most famous works include Sunflowers, The Potato Eaters and The Starry Night.
Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience runs from 5 July 2019 – 5 January 2020 at York St Mary’s.
Tickets for the experience are available now through Ticketmaster.co.uk
