CHRONOS by Epsztein & Gross at Lumiere Durham 2021
CHRONOS was an extraordinary passage through the years, exploring our physical journey through time and space. An estimated 140,000 visitors attended Lumiere 2021, which extended across County Durham as well as in Durham City. Bold commissions transformed significant landmarks across County Durham from the Apollo Pavilion at Peterlee to Raby Castle at Staindrop.

An immersive reflection on the present moment, the darkness and loss we have endured as well as the glimmering return of Lumiere as a moment of collective hope with In Our Hearts Blind Hope 2021.

Scattered Light at St Mary's College saw giant human shadows appear to float across a 3D matrix of light.
