See Constellations in West Kirby this weekend

Post by Wirral Council News » Thu Oct 17, 2019 1:23 pm

Looking for something to do over the weekend? You won't be disappointed by Constellations, a breathtaking visual and audio experience that will turn West Kirby's Marine Lake into a portal to the stars.

Commissioned by Wirral Borough of Culture, Constellations presents Studio Joanie Lemercier will create an immersive experience which takes the audience on a journey through the universe and the stars with a sound and light installation projected onto a huge water screen. This spectacular audio-visual installation will be seen from the south side of Marine Lake, next to West Kirby Sailing Club.

French artist Joanie Lemercier has been expanding the possibilities of light and space for the past 10 years. After exploring video mapping, live shows and gallery installations, in Constellations he uses an unlikely material to present his meticulous work: water.

Where and what time can I see Constellations?

Constellations presents Studio Joanie Lemercier is the first commission as part of a Liverpool City Region project, designed to inspire local communities to rediscover their neighbourhoods and spend time stargazing. The Constellations series will also see artists working in Liverpool, St Helens, Sefton, Halton and Knowsley over the coming weeks with information on all the free commissions available at constellationslcr.co.uk

Constellations was influenced by Wirral Borough of Culture 2019 and its themes of discovery, exploration and the great outdoors. More exciting space-themed events are planned as part of the final chapter of the year as Wirral celebrates an amazing 12 months and looks ahead to 2020. These include Luke Jerram’s internationally-acclaimed installation Museum of the Moon at Birkenhead Town Hall (Friday 25 October – Friday 15 November) and the return of fireworks extravaganza River of Light (Sunday 3 November).
