Leeds Corn Exchange

Call Lane, Leeds, LS1 6DG

Number 3 on the Christmas in Leeds Art Trail.

Dave Lynch works with Adam Glatherine, Suzie Cross and Paul Sheard to bring a creative exploration of the Aurora Borealis into the iconic space of the Corn Exchange, representing cross-national unity beneath the natural wonder of the Northern Lights. The installation transforms the interior of Cuthbert Broderick’s Grade I-listed Corn Exchange, an architectural masterpiece which matches the scale of Lynch’s pioneering projections.

As we all look up from Leeds to the same cold skies of the Northern Hemisphere during the winter months, this installation reimagines this act of unity through the immensity and magnificence of the Northern Lights. It will invite us to transcend our differences and come together to celebrate the cultural vibrancy and diversity of the North of England.

“The Northern Lights” transforms Cuthbert Brodrick’s iconic Grade I-listed Corn Exchange, as the arcing ceiling soaring high overhead takes on the purple, ever-changing hues of the Aurora Borealis.

Pioneering artist, director and inventor Dave Lynch works alongside Light Artist Adam Glatherine, regular collaborator Suzie Cross as Creative Producer and Lighting Designer, and Paul Sheard as Project Manager.
