LONDON.- Lazarides Gallery presents their collaboration with The Old Vic Tunnels. Staged within the recently discovered labyrinth beneath London’s Waterloo station, ‘Hell’s Half Acre’ will be a ground-breaking series of installations launching 12th October 2010.

Bringing the vision of Steve Lazarides to one of London’s most arresting performance spaces, the maze of tunnels will be converted into a large-scale evocation of Dante’s literary masterpiece Inferno. Visitors will explore the nine circles of Hell through the contributions of artists including: George Osodi, Antony Micallef, Polly Morgan, Jonathan Yeo, Conor Harrington, Christian Lemmerz, Vhils, Paul Insect, Mark Jenkins, Boogie, David Choe, Doug Foster, Zak Ové, Todd James, Ian Francis and many more...

Artists will provide their own interpretation of hell with freedom to reference both Purgatorio and Paradiso from the trilogy of The Divine Comedy. Through the curatorial direction, interaction with the exhibited works—paintings, sculptures, video pieces, performance and mixed media installation—is encouraged and part of this thrilling multi-sensory experience.

Highlights of the exhibition include for the very first time 3-dimensional installations by Conor Harrington and Jonathan Yeo, a new exclusively commissioned film by Todd James/ REAS, the powerfully chilling photographs of George Osodi and Boogie, with a surprise finale by Paul Insect. Hell’s Half Acre is a subterranean journey into hell as envisaged by a group of young, cutting edge artists. It’s a vision of our hellish society under coalition rule, inspired by Dante’s Inferno. — Steve Lazarides, Owner, Lazarides Gallery

Hell’s Half Acre at The Old Vic Tunnels will be open for viewing 12th – 17th October from 6pm – 11pm from Tuesday to Thursday and extended hours on the weekend. Entry to the exhibition will be free, but as space is limited all visitors must book ahead.
