Deep within the murky depths beneath Waterloo station lies a sequence of eerily deserted tunnels that experience remained unused for the reason that struggle. That is till now, when the ones sneaky ingenious varieties in London discovered it will make for a maximum bizarre arts and occasions area and therefore became the foreboding partitions into The Vaults Gallery!
Here, among the tunnels decorated with artwork for gallery exhibitions and tunnels laid out with extravagant set items for company occasions that will make a West End display jealous, The Vaults Gallery may be house to their own theatre. In their very own phrases The Vaults is “an arts space for the bold, the fresh and the fearless.” They collaborate with those that have “an affinity to the unusual, the daring and the unknown.” And so it gave the impression best herbal that I will have to be attracted to them for a collaboration of my very own!
Alongside London photographer Charlotte Levy I created a photographic collection impressed through this bizarre underworld. The first, entitled “You Want Good Time” (see above) performs on issues of human trafficking and wonderfully demonstrates why The Vaults Gallery is rapid changing into a favourite location for movie crews and photographers spherical the rustic! The 2d collection (beneath) is known as “The Actress Stripped Bare” and was once set inside of The Vaults Theatre. Here, Charlotte and I requested ‘What extra will have to an actor do on this international of insatiable international of “celebrity”? What extra will have to she give, what extra will have to she naked.. her soul? Her, existence? Her soul?’
