Thousands joined us on the Sunny Blunts Estate in Peterlee
Victor Pasmore’s Apollo Pavilion, one of Britain’s most famous examples of Brutalist art turned 50 in 2019. As part of Durham County’s celebrations, Artichoke produced Apollo 50, a mesmerising artwork by Berlin-based artists, Mader Wiermann. Their video-mapped light sequence accompanied by a gentle, undulating soundscape transformed Pasmore’s iconic design over the course of two nights.
The event launched the Lumiere learning and participation programme, ‘Lift Off’ for young people in the local area in partnership with Guildhall School of Music and Drama’s BA course in Video Design for Live Performance.
