One of the most notable stops in our hectic journey through London was Lazarides’ “Hell’s Half Acre” group exhibition. The pop-up show was located in the eerie tunnels of Leake Street (AKA the Old Vic Tunnels where the Cans Festival was held). The dark catacombs were the perfect setting to host this amazing group show that featured signature works from artists such as Ian Francis, David Choe, Conor Harrington, Antony Micallef and Jonathan Yeo.
One of the stand out pieces from the show was Paul Insect’s spin on the disco ball (seen above). Utilizing hypodermic needles filled with an radiating green substance, it lured in spectators like bees to honey. After navigating tremendous event we chilled out in the cool on-site tavern. Check it all out after the jump.
