Noste at the Southbank Winter Light festival

A time for brightness and festivity, the outdoor Winter Light exhibition – part of the Southbank Centre’s Winter Festival – returns after its successful debut year. The free open-air exhibition will illuminate the site’s iconic buildings and the Riverside Walk with dynamic and playful artworks during the darkest months of the year.

Featuring a range of critically acclaimed international artists, the exhibition includes 10 artworks – some of which will be installed in multiple locations – that make ingenious use of light, colour and experimental film to touch on thought-provoking topics, from nature and technology to modern cities and spirituality.

Participating artists in Winter Light are: David Batchelor, Oscar Fischinger, Zarah Hussain, Jacob Kvist, Teemu Määttänen, Tim Noble & Sue Webster, David Ogle, Lis Rhodes and Anne Roininen.

Multimedia artist Teemu Määttänen has remade the work Noste (2020), which loosely translates as ‘lift, upthrust and buoyancy’. Noste uses projection mapping to layer pulsing, gradienting colours onto minimalist columns. This deceptively simple combination of form and colour involves precise digital programming and technical accuracy. The work effectively brings a digital space into a physical space. Working with an impressive scale and architecture, Noste is a reality that appears to be an illusion. Noste was commissioned with the generous support of The Finnish Institute in the UK and Ireland.
