Heligan By Night – The Art of Illumination

December 14, 2017 Destination Europe No Comments Email Email

Step into ‘Heligan by Night’ and experience the art of illumination as internationally renowned light artist Ulf Pedersen reveals the nighttime magic of Heligan’shistoricplantings.

Journey through an after dark Lost Gardens and delight in the incredible textures, colours and atmosphere created by Pedersen’s thought-provoking illuminations; which bring light to the landscape and encourage the viewer to:

“…transform the act of looking into a physical experience – where audiences frequently find themselves immersed in a sensational play of light and colour as the space metamorphoses into something unique and magical.”  -Ulf Pedersen

Over 15 years Ulf has travelled internationally bringing his work to locations from Oxford Botanical Gardens to Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong. At home he has worked with the National Trust, producing a successful solo show at Hestercombe Gardens which examined the relationship between garden designer and architect Gertrude Jekyll and Edward Lutyens.

Pedersen says “These shows have attracted tens of thousands of visitors and given me great experience of bringing, small-scale, human experiences to large-scale artistic interventions”
