MAP: Installations at Lumiere in Durham – and where to find them

LUMIERE, the spectacular light festival, returns tomorrow, and to help you find your way through Durham’s dark cobbled streets, Northern Echo has produced an interactive map.

The full program of international artwork includes 31 impressive installations in Durham and a further six in the surrounding communities.

In addition to the works of art in the city center, they will also be on Finchale Priory, Penshaw Monument, Raby Castle, Ushaw Historic House and Gardens, Peterlee and Seaham Marina.

The organizers say that Lumiere 2021 promises to ‘restore the historical contours of county and city, politics and society’ using dramatic installations, spellbinding projections and silent and gripping works that show the endless possibilities of light art in all its forms.

Highlights include a recently commissioned work with Durham University, New Writing North and leading international poets whose enlightened words will be projected on Durham Castle; a video-mapped journey from reflection to celebration on the facade of Durham Cathedral; and Lumiere’s first interactive artwork that gives anyone the opportunity to participate, no matter where they are.

To find out more about each piece and the artist behind it, simply zoom in and click on a balloon on the map below and click through for a full description.

Lumiere will run from Thursday to Sunday and is open every night between 4.30pm and 11pm in Durham City and 10pm throughout the county.

The festival is free to attend, and 29 of the 39 installations are always available without a ticket.

In a change from previous years, the controlled downtown area of ​​Lumiere will be the ticket to the entire festival’s opening hours every night.
