Constellations presents Studio Joanie Lemercier
Friday 18 - Sunday 20 October
Marine Lake, West Kirby
Every half hour from 7pm with final performance at 9.30pm
Constellations presents Studio Joanie Lemercier will see a stunning 16-minute audio visual installation projected onto a wall of water particles, journeying through the universe at West Kirby Marine Lake from Friday 18 – Sunday 20 October. The installation will be the first part of a city region-wide celebration, called Constellations, with more immersive events linked to the stars taking place across all six boroughs.
Joanie Lemercier has been expanding the possibilities of light as a medium and space as a canvas for the past 10 years. After exploring languages like video mapping, live shows and gallery installations, in Constellations he uses an unlikely material to present his meticulous work: water.
This show becomes a gate for the exploration of the cosmos. 3D like visuals allow the audience to move from the heart of a black hole into deep space, travelling through planets and stars, as we look for the limits of the universe. Constellations is a fascinating journey where the vectorial, monochromatic aesthetics of Lemercier dialogues with the electronic soundscapes of producer Paul Jebanasam.
