Inspired by The Gospels’ themes of light and pilgrimage, Illuminated Sheep will encourage locals and visitors to find their inner shepherd, exploring the region’s rich landscape, heritage and culture to #FindTheFlock. From Jedburgh to Hexham and Haltwhistle to Blyth, a flock of 40 life-sized illuminated sheep, created by multi-disciplinary artist Deepa Mann-Kler, will appear creating a number of trails that can be completed on foot, bike or public transport. Online mapping, films and toolkits will support audiences to discover, and explore. Internationally renowned Deepa Mann-Kler, who works primarily with Neon, will put her unique stamp on the herd of model sheep. Deepa explores concepts of belonging and identity by creating artwork that is deeply rooted in the communities surrounding her. She has exhibited internationally in solo and group exhibitions in China, America, Germany and Ireland, and has featured prominently in Lumiere Festivals.
