Families can explore and experience intriguing light-art in a new exhibition at Banbury Museum.

Play of Light showcases work by Tine Bech, who is renowned for her innovative and interactive projects. Her work has been presented in leading museums and galleries such as The V&A and The Science Museum.

The exhibition invites visitors to participate, creating their own unique and memorable experiences. The museum is welcoming visitors to bring along their camera to capture these moments of light-art discovery, and is also hosting a light-art workshop on Saturday August 6 with Tine herself.

Banbury Museum exhibition manager Dale Johnston said: “Tine Bech’s work is normally seen in major national galleries and elsewhere in the world, so it is a privilege to exhibit her work in Banbury.

“Rarely do visitors get to alter the appearance of the artwork in front of them and this is part of what makes Play of Light appeal to adults and children alike.”

Play of Light has been created specifically for Banbury Museum. It continues Tine Bech’s exploration of what she describes as “the role of play in creating social bonds and new forms of communication and how technology increasingly shapes the way we interact with one another”.

The exhibition is open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 5pm until September 3. Tickets are available from the museum shop, costing £1.50. Visit www.banburymuseum.org for more.
