Drop Scene18th November 2021 - 21st November 2021
Location: Millburngate, Durham
Lumiere Durham have commissioned Liz West to make a new site-specific artwork for this years light festival. Drop Scene comprises of a long corrugated curtain of saturate and vivid colour covering the four apertures underneath the Milburngate bridge. Luminous light will pour into the 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.
