Lumiere Festival Installations to Light Up Streets of Swiss City Lausanne

LAUSANNE, Switzerland – Locals and visitors to Lausanne will have a chance to catch a glimpse of a series of installations that will illuminate the streets of the Swiss city.

Some 12 artworks are to be installed for the fifth edition of the Festival Lausanne Lumieres, which will light up the city center from Wednesday, according to the event’s organizers.

“It highlights the link between all stakeholders of the city with the same goal: to discover or rediscover Lausanne under a different light,” the organizers said of the festival on the event’s website.

“From Switzerland, France, Germany or the Netherlands, the creators are working light and giving it life through projections, sculptures or stages,” they added.

Epa photographs showed a first glimpse of some of the pieces that will go on display, including “Red Elephant” by French artist Bibi as well as an illuminated walkway titled “Bifrost” by art collective Pitaya.

Another image showed a passageway lit up in different colors as part of the installation “Double-Jeu,” by Caroline Favre and Damien Guerra.

The Lausanne Lumieres takes place from Nov. 22-Dec. 31, with guided tours available on Thursday evenings from 7 pm.

The festival’s umbrella organization, the International Light Festival Organisation, backs European and worldwide light festivals that seek to share their vision, inspiration, networking and information on an international level.

Light festivals stand at the crossroads of entertainment, design and art, and transform a city’s nocturnal landscape for the eyes of locals and visitors alike.

The next European light festivals are to take place in Helsinki from Jan. 6-10, 2018 and in Ghent (Belgium), from Jan. 31-Feb. 4, 2018.
