Out of This World

Environmental awareness and an understanding of life’s interconnectedness were the central themes of a stunning ‘Floating Earth’ art installation that took pride of place at Jersey’s Queen’s Valley Reservoir last year. Created by UK artist Luke Jerram and presented by ArtHouse Jersey in partnership with Jersey Water, the artwork used NASA’s imagery of Earth’s surface to offer viewers a unique perspective of our precious planet.

A Season of Art

ArtHouse Jersey offers an inspiring and insightful exhibition programme throughout 2024. Their 2024 Spring Summer exhibition programme begins with The Land and Us / La Terre et Nous (22 March – 5 May) which features a series of new commissions made collaboratively with a diverse cross-section of the Island population, all exploring our relationship to our local ecosystems.

Between 23 May and 30 June they welcome Layla Arthur: a young artist whose professional journey began attending ArtHouse Jersey’s Paper Dialogues exhibition in 2016, who has since gone on to build an impressive body of work consisting of exquisite paper cut sculptures that she is here showing in Jersey for the first time. This exhibition includes her large scale piece, Jersey: My Childhood Home. Each is a beautiful miniature world!

Our connection to landscape, its secrets and histories continues to be an inspiration across our French Season 2024, with the What Shadow? (Ce Qui Dit la Bouche d’Ombre) exhibition, a film screening and performances featuring new work from artists across the Channel Islands and France. August sees the launch of the new Butterfield Public Art Series, with a large scale public artwork in St Helier created by renowned Finnish artist, Kaarina Kaikkonen, made up of shirts previously belonging to Islanders.
