Cambridge Biomedical Campus

Concluding its two-year tour of the UK to remember those lost during the Covid-19 pandemic & pay tribute to the NHS, In Memoriam will be presented at Cambridge Biomedical Campus.

During June and July, Cambridge Biomedical Campus will be presenting this free art installation for the campus community on The Green & The Gardens at the heart of the site.

Alongside the installation, a range of events are planned to bring the campus community together.


Event Programme

In Memoriam will be the backdrop to a range of events aimed at bringing the Cambridge Biomedical Campus community to come together:

Monday 27 June – Friday 1 July, CUH Arts Festival
A range of free lunchtime activities will be provided by the CUH Arts team including creative writing with poet Hannah Jane Walker, an art-making workshop with artist Josh Bilton, and live music from Britten Sinfonia and The King’s Men.

Tuesday 12 July, 12pm-3pm, Campus Picnic
A free drop-in picnic will be held for campus employees, families and friends to attend.

Tuesday 12 July, 6pm, ‘The Dark Heals’ sound experience by Andrea Cockerton
In Memoriam will conclude with the launch of The Dark Heals, Andrea Cockerton’s year-long project with campus employees to produce an immersive musical experience to reflect the range of personal experiences through the COVID-19 pandemic. Attendees will be able to listen to the magical music via headphones as a group experience. Following this launch performance, The Dark Heals will be released online for anyone anywhere in the world to stream and experience via their own personal audio device.


Cambridge Biomedical Campus

Cambridge Biomedical Campus has played an important role throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. As such, it’s a fitting backdrop to use for the conclusion of the tour of In Memoriam.

The installation marks the completion of a 10-year commitment to public art across the Phase 1 Expansion Land at Cambridge Biomedical Campus, and the start of Phase 2 located to the south of Dame Mary Archer Way. Prologis has committed to a £1.65 million package of public art and public realm – making it one of the largest investments of its kind to date, in the Cambridge region.
