Fire Installation

Fire Garden

Compagnie Carabosse (France)


Huge glowing spheres, thousands of illuminated lanterns, simmering braziers and extraordinary sculptures made from metal and flames. 

Fire alchemists, Compagnie Carabosse used scrap metal, charcoal, and even cast-off clothing to create a magical free garden on a huge scale in St Columb’s Park.

Carabosse are one of France’s most important street arts groups, transforming streets and parks into flickering artworks that remind us of the most basic and elemental human need. Carabosse have performed all over the world, delighting thousands of visitors from Edinburgh to Brighton with installations that inspire awe and reverence in equal measure.

Another installation by Compagnie Carabosse, Spirit was part of Lumiere Durham 2013.
