The art of illumination with artist Ulf Pedersen.
This December and January, internationally renowned light artist Ulf Pedersen returns to The Lost Gardens of Heligan to reveal the night time magic of Heligan’s historic plantings. We invite you to experience the ‘Art of Illumination’ in this year’s ‘Heligan by Night’ event.
New for 2019, Ulf has worked closely with our team to create a unique selection of thought provoking projections that will come to life across the hedges and walls of Heligan’s historic landscape. Capturing the joyous occasion of the pineapple harvest and the activity of Heligan’s native black bees amongst other garden moments, the projections are set to bring the working garden to life at night.
Often architectural in scale, Ulf works closely with raw materials of the site, using light and colour as his essential tools, often combining these natural elements with new architectural forms he has designed. Ulf’s practice exploits both hi and lo-fi technologies and aims to highlight the poetic potential of place.
