Law firm Mogers makes light work of Holburne’s Christmas installation

November 28, 2012

Bath law firm Mogers has given the gift of light to the city’s Holburne Museum this Christmas by supporting a new major installation.

Circuit: A Light Labyrinth, a new artwork by Martin Richman and Charlie Kerr, is unique to the museum and follows the success of Bruce Munro’s Field of Light installation last year.

Visitors to the Holburne’s back garden will be able to walk through delicate strands of different coloured light in a web-like maze of clear acrylic rods and glowing coloured wire created by award-winning artist Martin Richman, whose previous work includes Bristol Bridge and London 2012.

The lights are accompanied by sounds created by artist/musician Charlie Kerr described as “an aural tapestry reminiscent of Georgian Bath with echoes of our own time stitched within the sound picture’’.

The installation, which follows the success of Bruce Munro’s Field of Light installation last year, is also supported by architects Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios and benugo, which runs the museum café.

Holburne director Alexander Sturgis said: “We could not have done anything like this without the support of our sponsors. It is an exciting project and will give people the chance to enjoy that sense of light at the darkest time of the year.

“Unlike Field of Light, visitors will be able to walk through the labyrinth and there will also be music playing while they do so. It will be an experience for all the senses. It will be beautiful.”

Mogers managing partner Steven Treharne said: “The Holburne Museum is an integral part of Bath’s landscape and when we heard it faced being in the dark this Christmas we felt it was important for the city that we stepped in to help.

“As a local family firm we are keen to support events which showcase Bath on a local and national level and which offer experiences for all generations. We are sure this will be a superb community event and I am looking forward to visiting with my children as it is set to be a truly festive and unique event.”

Circuit: A Light Labryinth opened today and lasts until January 9. It is closed on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. Admission is £2.
