Unicornfest officially launches tomorrow (Saturday 1st July 2023) and there’s something truly magical happening on the Clifton Suspension Bridge. The Unicornfest sculpture, sponsored by BNS and brought to life by the talented Kazz Hollick, has taken its place, shining in the sun. Have you spotted the magnificent Neuro-Disco-Corn yet?
This extraordinary unicorn sculpture is unlike any other, adorned with dazzling sparkly disco ball tiles that catch every ray of light. But what truly sets it apart is the heartfelt messages it carries, contributed by neurodiverse individuals who have shared their personal experiences. These messages add a profound depth to the already mesmerising artwork, giving it a voice that resonates with authenticity and vulnerability.
Kazz Hollick, the artist behind the Neuro-Disco-Corn, invites visitors to explore the concept of “glimmers” through stickers placed all over the sculpture. Glimmers are the opposite of triggers, acting as reminders that we are safe in the present moment. They represent the tiny moments of joy that bring us back to a state of calm amidst chaos. These glimmers provide solace and an opportunity to reconnect with what truly brings people peace.
Unicornfest officially commences on Saturday 1st July, and you’ll want to dive straight in to this sculpture trail taking place throughout Bristol and the surrounding areas.
