LUMIERE DURHAM 2017
Bell-ringing, brought out into the light.
Inspired by the tradition of English Change Ringing, which dates back to the 17th century, Pablo Valbuena’s new work transformed the interior and exterior of Durham’s iconic cathedral.
Methods connected the historical context of the building with its bells. Led by Durham Cathedral’s Bell Major, Christopher Crabtree, bands of bell-ringers from the North East and beyond performed a live performance throughout the festival.
