Luke Jerram: Crossings
Tue 19 July, 11.00am – Sun 4 September, 4.00pmBook Now
‘Crossings’ is a new sound installation artwork created by Luke Jerram in collaboration with BBC Radio4 producer Julian May, which has been commissioned by Compton Verney for presentation this summer. The installation will be taking place every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, from 19 July – 4 September 2022.
The installation will consist of 10 rowing boats on the lake at Compton Verney. Each of the boats will play include audio installations of stories submitted by participants from around the world. In choosing a boat and rowing out into the lake for 30 minutes you will be taken on an audio journey, transported to another life and circumstance. The live sounds of the rowing boat will blend with the recorded audio, to help create a truly engaging and immersive experience.
“Being on a boat that’s moving through the water, it’s so clear. Everything falls into place in terms of what’s important and what’s not.” James Taylor
“We are imprisoned in the realm of life, like a sailor on his tiny boat, on an infinite ocean.”
This artwork is funded through our NPO and part funded through project grants by Luke Jerram.
