The artist Luke Jerram, known worldwide for his large scale public engagement artworks, will be bringing his latest project ‘In Memoriam’ to Chapelfield Gardens as part of INTERLUDE from Fri 4 – Sun 6 Sept. Luke is well known to the city, after bringing ‘MUSEUM OF THE MOON’ to The Forum for the Norfolk & Norwich Festival in 2017.
The large scale, FREE ceremonial art installation has been inspired by the COVID-19 pandemic and is both a memorial for the public to visit and remember all those we have lost, and a tribute NHS health and care workers who have been risking their lives daily during the crisis.
Created from bed sheets and presented in the open air, the structure allows people to enter, contemplate and explore the artwork, whilst adhering to the rules of social distancing. Referencing those people who have been in hospital and care homes during this pandemic, the bedsheet flags are arranged in the form of a medical logo.
A short programme of events will be announced shortly to accompany to exhibition. For more information on the exhibition visit the Norfolk & Norwich Festival website.
