Banks Group add permanent artwork to Durham landscape

Alongside the launch of Lumiere Durham 2017, the Banks Group have added to the Durham landscape for a second time with a permanent artwork from Lumiere Durham 2015.

Lightbench by Bernd Spiecker for LBO-Lichtbankobjekte (Germany) is now installed in the new Freeman’s Quay development. It joins Tobie Langel’s witty and unusual civic clock, Helvetictoc, which is sited on the wall above the city’s Library and was the Banks Group’s first permanent Lumiere gift to the Durham community.
