‘Grace of the Sun’ by Robert Montgomery for COP26

We’re so proud to reveal our COP26 installation, by our artist Robert Montgomery! ☀️

This solar-powered light poem is urging commitment to renewable energy at the UN climate conference, COP26, and will illuminate every day at sunset as a poetic beacon of hope for Glasgow – it’s magical.

Robert Montgomery, a Scottish artist, constructed the 11 metre-wide and five metre-tall artwork using 1,000 solar-powered Little Sun’s lights. Post-COP26, the artwork will be dismantled and the lights will join Little Sun’s wider efforts to provide clean, affordable solar power to the 600 million people living without electricity in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Located at arts and climate justice pop-up The Landing Hub on the Sustainable Glasgow Landing site, the project is enabled by global green energy tech pioneer Octopus Energy. The local community are invited to come along and join in with the lighting of the sculpture each day between 2pm and 4pm.

As the first certified B Corp®️ UK company within the art sector and a member of the Gallery Climate Coalition, we are specialists in sustainable art production.
