Round of Clocks, King’s Lynn Minster

Artists: Amandine Meyer & Julia Dantonnet

Inspired by the tide or Moon clock, seen on one of the west facing towers of King’s Lynn Minster.

‘The Round of Clocks’ by Amandine Meyer and Julia Dantonnet reflects upon human measurement of time and how the mechanisms we use to chart it reveal our vision of the world. This stimulating and surprising installation uses circular shapes and animated rotational movements as well as features of the building including the magnificent stained glass window.

   

 

ST NICHOLAS' WAVES

St Nicholas’ Chapel

Artists: Shantidas Riedacker & Dorian Rigal

Surprising and striking, this dramatic light show encourages people to take another look at the magnificent architecture of St Nicholas' Chapel. A series of abstract patterns and shapes envelop the spire, disrupting our conventional view of the 19th century structure and drawing new attention to it.

 

ECOSYSTEMS

1 – 3 Tuesday Market Place (Lloyds/TSB Bank)

Artists: Guillaume LePoix & Thomas Daveluy

Focusing on the use of natural resources, Guillaume LePoix & Thomas Daveluy create a fascinating depiction of the contstruction and deconstruction of a building. As plants emerge from the ground, we see how different resources and materials are used to create the fabric and living spaces of the building.

 

NIGHT SAILORS

The Custom House

Artist: Julia Dantonnet

Julia Dantonnet has used light and projection to create “Night Sailors” which highlights one of Kings Lynn's most iconic landmarks, the Custom House. Composed with archive images, geographical and stellar maps, “Night Sailors” draws on King’s Lynn’s role as a cradle of development for deep-sea navigation in the Middle Ages.

 

DOING UNDOING THE TIDE

18 New Conduit Street (Vancouver Quarter)

Artist: Gaëtan Robillard

Gaëtan Robillard’s creation for 18 New Conduit Street, Baxter’s Plain also explores King’s Lynn’s maritime past. Inspired by the lighthouse-like tower of the building, he has developed a work based upon the movements of the sea. Undulating waves cover the building. Gradually, images emerge from the water, uncovering more about King’s Lynn's heritage and inviting people to consider how the past influences our modern world.

 

EPHEMERAL SCENES OF LIN

Greyfriars Tower

Artist: Halida Boughriet

Artist, Halida Boughriet, has taken her cue from Greyfriar’s Tower’s historical use as a landmark for sailors and the Celtic origins of the town’s name (‘Lin’ meant lake) to develop an enchanting projection based upon the town’s links with water. Water, awesome and powerful, calm and serene appears to fill the tower, in this striking show.
