The Empty Plinth

IMG_3501The Holywell Trust’s City Walls Heritage Project is working with the Nerve Centre’s Teaching Divided Histories  and Public Image – Events to create a light installation on the Plinth on Royal Bastion on the City Walls. Entitled ‘the Empty Plinth’  the artwork is part of the four day Lumiere Festival of Light in Derry from 28th November to 1st December. The emptiness of the Plinth will be be filled with a simple, pure beam of white light.  This week’s light installation is the first of the series of artworks planned for 2013/4 to bring the Plinth and Bastion alive, reclaiming these contested spaces for everyone in Derry.
