Nordic Lights at Harbourfront Centre

Six exciting installations comprise the free, outdoor Nordic Lights display at Toronto's Harbourfront Centre by artists from the Scandinavian and Nordic region on from January 27 to February 13, 2022 (5pm-10pm daily).

"This uniquely immersive collaboration, led by visual artists and lighting and video designers from Canada, Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden is co-produced by Fjord Studio. Transforming Harbourfront Centre’s ten-acre campus on the waterfront into an open-air gallery creates a COVID-safe collective art experience for the city’s residents and visitors to enjoy. In addition to the light installations, award-winning Icelandic writer Kristin Gunnarsdóttir is commissioned to create a creative response to the exhibition. This audio tour will be available at as of January 28, 2022."

The works are; Control No Control, Equinox, Gorzi, Great Minds, Pressure and Sense Light Swing. My favourite was Control No Control which is a large LED cube that monitors movement and produces light patterns and sounds that react to the movement of the people near the cube. Second was Pressure which is a doodle like elevated display of a LED hose that wraps around the metal supporting structure providing flashes of light moving through the hose.
"Fjord Studio was founded by artist and curator Anastasia Isachsen and producer Frank Isachsen, the team behind the light art festival Fjord Oslo. Since 2020, their work has expanded to conceptualize and produce temporary and permanent projects at the intersection of art and technology in Norway and internationally. “NORDIC LIGHTS is a celebration of both Nordicness and broad exploration of light art. It is significant in these times of separation to unite artists from Nordic countries and Canada and present an expressive, poetic and inspiring exhibition, bringing light and art to everyone in Toronto,” says Anastasia Isachsen, Fjord Studio, curator of NORDIC LIGHTS."
