In Memoriam Luke Jerram

In Memoriam
Artwork by Luke Jerram

In Memoriam is an artwork by Luke Jerram commissioned by The Weston Arts + Health Weekender for presentation on Weston-super-Mare beach, once the COVID-19 lockdown in the UK has ended.

The installation is a temporary memorial for the public to visit and remember all those we have lost in this crisis. The artwork is also made in tribute to all the NHS staff members and volunteers who have been risking their lives during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Created from over 100 hospital bed sheets, the flags are arranged in the form of a medical logo. The number of flags will be designed to symbolically reflect the number of people we have lost this year in the UK epidemic.
