Giant illuminated animal sculptures will be on show at Salford Quays at the end of May

Illuminated art in the shape of endangered animals will be on show at Salford Quays between May 20 and 29.

Lit up each night between 9pm and 11pm, the four sculptures which are part of the Unnatural Borders light show are intended to explore “the interaction and impact between human civilization and the animal kingdom environment”.

The work is a Quays Culture commission from Sober Industries and follows the spectacular Lightwaves at Salford Quays.

The Quays already look pretty spectacular after dark due to all of the brightly lit and colourful offices in the area and the animal sculptures will make it a great place for an evening stroll.
