David Ward: Light on Their Feet: Footfalls for Rambert

Sponsored by:

Enjoy a beautiful site-specific collaboration between artist David Ward (UK) and the Rambert Dance Company, with Light on Their Feet: Footfalls for Rambert, a work that exists outside of the Rambert building, Upper Ground, revealing the activity within.

By photographing the soles of the dancers’ feet, Ward has made a series of images that fade slowly into visibility and then out again, each foot disclosing a different relationship to the surface beneath.

Ward’s work includes painting, photography, light, sound, dance and performance. The former artist in residence at King’s College, Cambridge, Harvard University and Durham Cathedral has collaborated with numerous choreographers, composers, architects and other artists in both permanent and temporary public commissions. His new work for Lumiere London is a development of a work commissioned by King’s College Cambridge in 2016.

Find out more about the technicians who have helped to make this installation possible.
