Wednesday 27 March 2013 - Tuesday 31 December 2013
Equanimity by light artist Chris Levine and holographer Rob Munday is on permanent display in the Tudor Great Hall of the fortress and will be joined this summer by other, equally stunning, works including “The Lightness of Being”. Read more about Chris Levine and Rob Munday.
Equanimity is a world-renowned holographic portrait of Her Majesty. It was commissioned by Jersey Heritage for the royal castle of Mont Orgeuil as part of the 1204-2004 celebrations of 800 years of Jersey’s allegiance to the British Crown.
The work, which is the only 3D image of a monarch ever produced, involved taking 10,000 photographs of the Queen over two sittings, many of which will also be on display as part of the exhibition. The Lightness of Being is part of a collection of those images, and has become celebrated in its own right, featuring on book and magazine covers around the world. The exhibition will open on 24th May.
