Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon comes to KENSINGTON + CHELSEA FESTIVAL

An incredible lunar installation will be unveiled as part of the Kensington + Chelsea Festival this August 2021. Museum of the Moon is a touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram. Measuring seven metres in diameter, the moon features 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. At an approximate scale of 1:500,000, each centimetre of the internally lit spherical sculpture represents 5km of the moon’s surface*.

The acclaimed installation will be displayed, first outdoors and then, moved to a special indoor location during the Festival’s run, altering the perception of the artwork as it moves from space to space. Scheduled to be showcased in Kensington Town Hall Square from11-15th August, it will then ‘float through air and space to a nearby location from 17-30th August. The optimum time to enjoy this lunar experience is at 7pm when it will come alive with music created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award winning composer Dan Jones. Attendance is free of charge and open to all.
