This year’s Light Festival introduces three UK debuts, including the mesmerizing “Large Diamond” by Freerk Wilbers, a Dutch artist. Comprising 183 diamond-shaped pieces of special reflective material, the moving installation will be featured in the Power Station’s Turbine Hall A.

As light filters through the diamonds, it will cast enchanting reflections on the Art Deco features of the space, providing a visual treat for visitors.

Beyond Sight: Engaging the Senses with Soundscapes

Not limited to visual experiences, many installations this year will offer enhanced sensory engagement. For instance, “LightPiano” by Arion de Munck and Mark Ridder in Turbine Hall B intertwines sound and light.

To complement this, musicians will showcase their talents on the piece, with themed performances like “The Best of Movie Soundtracks” on Monday to Wednesday evenings.

Interactive Fun: Lightbattle III in Malaysia Square

Located in Malaysia Square, “Lightbattle III” by Venividimultiplex invites visitors to step into two arches of light and participate in a cycling competition. The ultimate victor will be rewarded with a dazzling flood of colourful light, adding an interactive and competitive element to the festival.

Simon Murphy, CEO of Battersea Power Station Development Company, expresses enthusiasm, stating, “The Light Festival is one of our most popular events at Battersea Power Station, and we are excited to see it return with even more interactive pieces for visitors to enjoy in January and February.”
