Light Touch

An open weekend of temporary art installations at Northlight. We filled the mill with artwork and performance pieces which were inspired by its empty structures, generating discussion about the role of arts and culture in the mill and the local area.


In August 2014, we partnered with Mid Pennine Arts to host an open weekend of temporary art installations at Northlight Mill.

In-Situ presented new collaborative works by past and current artists-in-residence including:

► Poems written with local residents, by Mike Chavez-Dawson

► A film by African American artist Autumn Knight from Houston, Texas which explores the connection between the cotton and slavery

► A sound piece by Helmut Lemke, whose use of drips and fishing wire created long echoes across an entire empty floor of the mill

► Artwork by London based sound and light artist Nayan Kulkarni using light and mirrors

► Live music with tablas and dhol drums

Light Touch was commissioned by Super Slow Way and funded by Arts Council England.
