With the darkness of winter closing in on us a new illuminating exhibition has arrived to brighten our days.

Throughout January, the Canary Wharf horizon will be lit up by a temporary art exhibition.

“Winter Lights” brings installations and impressive artworks from 11 internationally acclaimed artists to the Estate.

This interactive, hands-on festival of light will see the landscape transformed into a dazzling stage of sculptures, lasers, projections and digital art.

Ice Angel is an interactive artwork by Dominic Harris and Cinimod Studio, providing participants with a glimpse of themselves depicted in angelic form.

Control No Control is an interactive LED sculpture by Daniel Iregui which invites its audience to use their hands and bodies to create sounds and graphics.

And Lightbench and Heatbench add a new dimension to the experience of taking the weight off your feet.

In addition, Glow Performers will appear across the space in the Estate and free face-painting for children over three can be enjoyed in the shopping malls throughout the weekend.

Winter Lights runs from January 5 to 30 and is free entry.
