  • Findhorn Bay Arts Festival - Glass Microbiology Year of Innovation, Architecture & Design

    Findhorn Bay Arts Festival - Glass Microbiology

    Dates:Wed 21 Sep - Sun 2 Oct Location:Brodie Castle

    From The Metropolitan Museum in New York to The Museum of Glass in Shanghai, Luke Jerram’s Glass Microbiology sculptures have appeared in museums and galleries around the world.

    Details

    We are delighted to announce that Glass Microbiology will be making its Scottish debut at Brodie Castle as part of the Findhorn Bay Festival 2016.

    Created to contemplate the global impact of the diseases they portray, Glass Microbiology offers alternative representations of viruses to the artificially coloured imagery received through the media. By extracting colour from the imagery and creating jewel-like sculptures in glass, Jerram creates a complex tension between the artworks’ beauty and the deadly portent they represent.

    UK artist Luke Jerram is known worldwide for creating huge and hugely entertaining public artworks. His celebrated street pianos installation Play Me, I’m Yours has been presented in over fifty cities and his Sky Orchestra was commissioned to celebrate the 2012 London Olympics. In 2010, Glass Microbiology won the coveted Rakow Award and in 2015 was exhibited at ArtScience Museum, Singapore, alongside Leonardo Da Vinci’s Codex Atlanticus. Photographs of Jerram’s glass artworks have featured in the Lancet, the British Medical Journal and Nature Magazine and are now seen as useful representations of virology within the scientific community.

    Exhibition is in the library, free entry to exhibition only. Castle Open: Sat to Wed, 10.30am to 4pm and Thurs and Fri 12.30pm to 3.30pm.

Both visually stunning and hugely informative, this ground-breaking collection weaves compelling narratives about the UK’s ecosystems and the vital role they play in all our lives.
