Canary Wharf’s annual celebration of light technology and art returned from the 16th to the 27th January 2018 with over 30 cutting edge installations and astounding artworks to discover.
Located around the Estate, both indoors and out, free to visit and easy to access, Winter Lights offers everything from small intimate displays to impressive interactive artworks you can enter and explore.
Canary Wharf Public Art team commissioned the e-Luminate Studio to create a series of Light Cubes for the Canary Wharf shopping mall areas as well as a major commission for the lobby at One Canada Square. The e-Luminate Studio worked with contemporary British artist Robert Montgomery for the latter exhibiting a brand new commission, The Estuary Poem for Wyndham Lewis, and one of the artist’s most popular pieces, The People You Love.
The Light Cubes project included the works of Laurent Fort, a French light artist currently living and working in New York, with an immersive piece called Polaris as well as a collaboration between lighting designers Malgosia Benham and Simon Fisher for their interactive Playful Shadows installation.
