Battersea Power Station,
Cost: Free of Charge
Battersea Power Station’s annual Light Festival is returning bigger and brighter than ever before to illuminate the winter evenings.
The free-to-attend event will feature seven spectacular pieces of artwork from British and international artists. Shining bright and with more interactive pieces for visitors to enjoy, the installations will be on display inside the London landmark and around the surrounding riverside neighbourhood.
Three of the light installations, including Large Diamond by Freerk Wilbers, will be making their UK debut and two pieces will be making their London debut.
This year, many of the light installations will offer more than just a visual experience for festival-goers, enhanced with soundscapes and interactive elements that respond to visitors’ movements. For example, LightPiano by Arion de Munck and Mark Ridder in Turbine Hall B questions how sound and light can become one as visitors are able to simultaneously play a piano and play with light resulting in a special kind of instrument that resonates with ears, eyes and heart. There will also be a schedule of musicians showcasing their skills on the piece on Monday to Wednesday evenings throughout the festival, with fun themes such as The Best of Movie Soundtracks.
Lightbattle III by Venividimultiplex located in Malaysia Square encourages visitors to step inside two arches of light and take part in a cycling competition, with the ultimate winner awarded with a flood of colourful light.
Making its UK debut at Battersea Power Station, Large Diamond by Dutch artist, Freerk Wilbers, is a moving installation which consists of 183 diamond-shape pieces of special reflective material. On display in the Power Station’s Turbine Hall A during the Light Festival, the light falling through the diamonds will create sparkling reflections on the beautiful Art Deco features of the space for visitors to enjoy.
