Prem Sahib: Liquid Gold


For EAF24, we are presenting an outdoor site-specific light installation by Prem Sahib – Liquid Gold.

Presented after hours in collaboration with Bard, the artist invites viewers to be spectators, but never cross the threshold to the building’s interior. The positioning of viewers outside of the space itself invites commentary on inclusion, basking in this inaccessible yellow light with its allusions to glory, power, transcendence, and spirituality, as well as bodily substances.

This work, first initiated as part of Sahib’s White Cubicle installation at the George and Dragon, London, emerged from his ongoing exploration into codified relationships inherent within colour, form and spatial contexts.

Find out more about Prem Sahib’s performance work Alleus.

Supported by Bard and the PLACE Programme, a partnership between Edinburgh Festivals, Scottish Government, City of Edinburgh Council and Creative Scotland; and Phillida Reid.
