Power Ball XX: Carousal @THE POWER PLANT – Thurs., May 31st, 2018

On May 31st we experienced great art, music, food, fashion and entertainment, all in the name of Power Ball’s TWENTIETH XX Power Ball XX: Carousal, an outrageous carnivalesque celebration unlike anything we have encountered before.
Upon arriving at the Power Plant, we were met by two extravagantly attired greeters on stilts. The gallery foyer was full with patrons and each room was filled with visuals such as: an Alien theme, a fruit theme and the patio filled with people dancing to the sounds of a live DJ!
This year’s Special Project Artists transformed the gallery into an experiential funland reflective of this year’s theme, Power Ball XX: Carousal.
The featured artist from London, England were the design team of Bompas & Parr.
Founded by Sam Bompas and Harry Parr, the artists created a one-night-only, carnivalesque adult funland to Power Ball’s milestone 20th year and reflect this year’s theme, Carousal.
Bompas & Parr’s highly anticipated art at Power Ball transformed the gallery into a giant space and big party.
With an artistic and taste-centric approach on the funfair of yesteryear, traditional rides and childhood fan favourites – carnival slides and house of horrors – were re-imagined by incorporating powerful taste components that exoticize the guests’ experience.
We would like to thank Daliah Hijazi Marsons and Stacey Fishman from rock-it promotions for the invitation to this event. We look forward to Powerball 21 in 2019.
