Lumen Studios present a series of works inspired by the naturally dark skies of Grizedale Forest. Lumen is an art collective, focused on themes of astronomy and light.  Through the production of art, exhibitions and seminars, Lumen aim to raise a dialogue about how humanity understands existence. During this residency, Lumen are particularly keen to highlight the importance of preserving dark sky areas, raising awareness of the ecological problems caused by light pollution.

In Search of Darkness’, curated by art collective Lumen Studios, will show works
by selected UK and international artists responding to the naturally dark skies of the Grizedale
area. Featured artists include Maria Luigia Gioffre, Eunjung Kim, Susan Eyre, Julie Hill, Anthony
Carr, Melanie King, Louise Beer, Rebecca Huxley, Diego Valente and William Arnold.
Works have been created following a three day residency that took place between 6-8 July
2018, when artists spent time exploring Grizedale and its surrounding area throughout the day
and night. During the residency artists considered the importance of preserving dark sky areas
and raise awareness of the ecological problems caused by the impact of artificial light. This
exhibition is a culmination of that experience, and brings a multitude of ideas into conversation
around light pollution and its impact on wellbeing and urban and rural landscape ecology.
On display will be a range of astrophotography, screen prints, intricate hand-drawings,
sculptures and video work.
