New commission Installation


Liz West (UK)

Location: Underneath Milburngate Bridge

Luminous light pours into a dark tunnel through corrugated coloured panels, creating mesmerising and kaleidoscopic visuals

This work invites audiences to investigate their surroundings, basking in coloured light. 

The title Drop Scene is taken from the theatrical meaning of the word, playing on the idea of a curtain and an unexpected vibrant “change of scenery” dividing the riverside from the underpass. 

More of Liz West’s work can be seen at Ushaw House and Gardens as part of the Lumiere: Marks in the Landscape programme
