During Paradise Kortrijk, two immense, brightly coloured, rainbow-shaped neon displays appear on the roof of the Budatoren and the Residentie Budalys. They project the words ‘long last happy’ and ‘cry me a river’ right on top of the city. In other words, renowned artist Ugo Rondinone has brought his iconic rainbows to Kortrijk. The glamorous, brightly coloured neon light is reminiscent of the psychedelia of the sixties.
