We Light Riyadh

Noor Riyadh





We Light Riyadh (2021) by Lucas De Man and Pascal Leboucq of Company New Heroes is an installation created with more than 800 lamps, which sheds new light on the rapidly changing city of Riyadh, reconnecting its cosmopolitan residents in an engaging project that presents their inspiring and touching stories to each other, the city and the world. By inviting residents to participate in a collective statement to create this unique art installation together, #WeLightRiyadh calls on the people of Riyadh to take a digital picture of their bedside lamp or night light and answer humanity’s existential question: What gives you light? And why? The people of Riyadh will be the focus of this collective artwork, as the public will also be able to discover some of their stories thanks to QR codes attached to the lamps at Al Nakheel Sport Park.
