Hell's Half Acre at The Vaults

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 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, Vhils, Paul Insect, Mark Jenkins, Boogie, Doug Foster, Christian Lemmerz, Todd James, Ian Francis and many more.

Artists will provide their own interpretation 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 par in 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.
