Following in the footsteps of Damien Hirst, Anish Kapoor and Henry Moore, Chis Levine is the seventh artist to hold a major show at the grand historic setting of Houghton Hall in Norfolk.

The solo presentation, 528 Hz Love Frequency, features a collection of site-specific works installed within the Grade I-listed house and surrounding landscape. A large-scale sculpture entitled Molecule of Light harnesses the natural light during the day, transforming as night falls with colourful projections of laser light forms that are calibrated with the rotation of the earth. Levine has also collaborated with acclaimed sound designer Marco Perry to produce an ambient soundscape that echoes across the grounds, playing with frequency and vibration to create an immersive, meditative experience.

“I’ve always sought to create art that draws the viewer to stillness and into a meditative expansive state,” commented the artist. “The more the work can be accessed through the heart and not needing to be mentally processed allows for a deeper sensory experience and something that moves us emotionally and with a positive impact on our physiological state.”

The show also includes a new series of Levine’s signature holographic artworks, which are on display in the South Wing gallery alongside his iconic images of the Queen (Lightness of Being, 2012), Banksy, Kate Moss and Grace Jones.
