Liliane Lijn: Moonmeme, 1992-ongoing

June 17, 2016 - June 26, 2016

Liliane Lijn writes the single word ‘SHE’ across the moon in letters large enough to be seen from earth. This real-time computer simulation is experienced in an isolated space within a 15th Century tower. Over the course of each lunation (lunar month), the letters appear and slowly fade as the moon wanes – demonstrating the interlocking of opposites.

Lijn’s internationally acclaimed multi-disciplinary practice includes kinetic sculpture, poetry, film and performance, exploring language, mythology and the relationship between light and matter. Moonmeme was shown as an immersive installation in Arts Catalyst’s 2014 exhibition, Republic of the Moon.

A Barnaby Festival Commission, financially supported by Arts Council England.  See also Bedwyr Williams, Hannah Imlach, Hondartza Fraga and the commissions from Macclesfield-based artists.

Opening times:
Friday 17 June, 6.30-9pm
Saturday 18 – Sunday 26 June, 10am-4pm
