This winter, Absolutely Cultured presents Urban Legends: Northern Lights, a newly commissioned outdoor event featuring captivating projections and atmospheric soundscapes, brand new for Hull in 2018.
Drawing inspiration from the connections between Hull and the countries across the North Sea in Northern Europe and Scandinavia, Urban Legends: Northern Lights will spark conversations about the common stories shared between these places.
Taking inspiration from ancient mythology, fairy tales and oral history, the buildings, pavements, shop windows and winding alleys of Hull city centre will be the pages on which stories are told.
From large and impressive to intimate and moving, the city will be at its dazzling winter best as the event brings together artists from the UK and Scandinavia.
Lead artists include Dodda Maggý, Heinrich and Palmer, imitating the dog, NOVAK, Studio McGuire and Zsolt Balogh’s New Visual Paradigm, with contributions from other collaborators. Many of these artists are already familiar with the city, with previous work celebrated in Hull during its year as the UK City of Culture 2017.
This event will be free and unticketed.
