Illumini - The Crypt, St Pancras Church
Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
A NEW exhibition entitled Illumini will be on display in The Crypt of St Pancras Church – from September 4 to September 17, 2008.
Illumini will bring together a variety of artists, all sharing a passion for the subject of light. Set in the famous St Pancras crypt, these impressive pieces of artwork, ranging from photographs and paintings depicting light to sculptural works that literally glow, will transform the crypt’s ‘murky and shadowy’ atmosphere like never before.
The artists will include Mercedes Altuna, Madi Boyd, David Chalkley, Vincenzo Di Maria, Lewis Hayward, Caroline Lambard, Jayne Lloyd, Liz Murfitt, Adrian Navarro, Silviu Pascalin, Suzan Swale, Matthew Swift, Andrea Tyrimos, Jane Webb and Deon Winter.
On opening night (from 6pm to 9pm), there will be a full evening of free entertainment – light shows, circus acts and performance artists working with illumination – taking place throughout the crypt. Admission free.
Curated by Jane Webb, Illumini is supported by Mathmos, who will be displaying a range of their latest products, as well as Surelight, Glowsafe and the Glass bar.
Times: Daily from 11am to 7pm.
The Crypt, St Pancras Church, Euston Rd/Duke’s Rd, London, NW1 2BA.
