Journey to the Centre of the Earth – which takes its title from Jules Verne's novel – follows on from Cockayne, Gayle Chong Kwan's exhibition on the hoardings around Southwark Station.

For this latest project Chong Kwan has worked with London Underground staff, Southwark College students, market traders and staff at the Borough Market restaurant Roast to create a dramatic volcanic landscape called Core in one of the passenger subways at London Bridge station and another large billboard – Hollow Earth – at Southwark. Further works are on display inside Roast.

A series of 'sensory tours' led by theatre director Cassie Werber will be held between 24 August and 8 September; booking is essential.
