Luke Jerram’s multidisciplinary practice involves the creation of sculptures, installations and live arts projects. Living in the UK but working internationally since 1997, Jerram has created a number of extraordinary art projects which have excited and inspired people around the globe.
With many of his artworks in permanent collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Wellcome Collection in London, he also tours his art installations to art festivals and museums worldwide. In 2018 alone, he had 73 exhibitions in 21 different countries.
He is now known globally for his innovative arts practice and large scale public artworks. Gaining extensive international media coverage he has exhibited with many of the established cultural organisations around the world.
In 2019 he set up and funded the Dreamtime Fellowship to support recent graduates in his home city of Bristol.
His artwork the Museum of the Moon is one of Luke’s newest arts projects that has caught the public’s imagination which so far has been presented in different ways, more than 100 times in 30 different countries. Experienced by more than 5 million people worldwide, the artwork has recently toured India with the British Council, been presented at the Commonwealth Games in Australia and exhibited in Aarhus, Denmark for the European Capital of Culture. Luke Jerram was made a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society in 2019.
Learning from each artwork and moving on, Jerram is continually re-inventing his arts practice. Over time however, narratives connecting these different artworks have emerged and continue to evolve. The new book Luke Jerram: Art, Science & Play provides a fascinating insight into the evolving practice of international artist Luke Jerram. With over fifty colour photographs the publication delves into the mind of an artist known for his imaginative ability to combine art, science and play.
