Following tours across the world, the stunning Gaia installation by acclaimed artist Luke Jerram is set to arrive in Leeds this Autumn, illuminating one of the city’s churches in a unique way.
A realistic 6-metre diameter replica of our planet, Gaia will call Holy Trinity Boar Lane Church home between the 8th and 26th November, giving Yorkshire folk the chance to awe over the artwork that has been touring the world (and been well documented on social media) since 2019.
Designed using NASA imaging, the beautiful, glowing installation is full of impeccable detail, and wows audiences in every city it graces.
Gaia encourages audiences to admire the planet we live on with an ‘overview effect’, showing the magnitude of the wonderful, magnificent place that we call Earth.
It’s a rare opportunity to see the popular spectacle in real life here in Yorkshire, with the installation last seen in Yorkshire back in 2021 when it showcased in Hull.
Gaia’s appearance in Leeds next month marks its first time in the Yorkshire city.
The beautiful free-to-attend exhibition will follow Bolton Abbey’s showcase of Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon this month, which just like Gaia, allows visitors to experience the moon like never before.
