Illumine; BIG PICTURE.

Byline: Imogen Cloet

This month, in a departure from the norm, it's the artist rather than the photographer who gets the title credit. But it was no easy task for Culture photographer Claire McKie to encapsulate in one frame the magic of Imogen Cloet's installation at Cragside. The National Trust property near Rothbury has, once again, become a summer showcase for artists who like a challenge and respond to atmosphere and history. The exhibition, ranged across house and grounds, is called Lux. Imogen transformed Lord Armstrong's dining room in making her piece, Illumine, which comprises heritage lightbulbs, mirrors and a magnificent stuffed swan. The great engineer, you feel, would have been impressed.
