This December, step in to ‘Heligan by Night’ and experience the art of illumination as internationally renowned light artist Ulf Pedersen returns to reveal the night time magic of Heligan’s historic plantings.

Journey through an after dark Lost Gardens and delight in the incredible textures, colours and atmosphere created by Pedersen’s thought-provoking illuminations. New for this year Heligan debuts a selection of Pederson’s unique sound and light installations in addition to last years display, to create a dazzling nocturnal immersive experience; 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

Often architectural in scale Ulf’s works closely with raw materials of the site, using light and colour as his essential tools, often combining these natural or architectural 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.

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.
