EVENT: Small Step, Giant Leap – A lunar landing-inspired intervention by Bruce Munro
Saturday 20 July 2019
On 20 July 1969 astronaut Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon – a moment that those who witnessed it will never forget.
Drawing inspiration from this life-changing event artist Bruce Munro will present Small Step, Giant Leap – an unscheduled landing in our thirteenth century barn on Saturday 20 July 2019 to mark 50 years since the lunar landing. Projected on to the vast stonewalls of the barn will be the artist’s visualisation of the moon created from an animated projection, which takes Armstrong’s now iconic words translated into Morse code to create an abstract visual pattern. Artist Christopher Kurtz’s suspended wooden constellations – on show in the barn from 13 July – 1 September – will complement this lunar intervention.
Small Step – Giant leap is a recognition of that single feat, and incredible moment in history, and features a sound element of the original NASA recordings between Mission control, Apollo 11 and the Lunar Module.
Preview screening at 7.30pm
Post-landing supper with Bruce Munro at 8pm
