It Ends Here - Martin Firrell - Waterloo Vaults

Public artist Martin Firrell mines the popular cultural phenomena which is the Planet Of The Apes saga (in particular the imminent Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes with its themes of human behavior and our propensity to self sabotage) in this new installation. Lurking in the tunneled darkness beneath Waterloo station, text and sound articulate ideas thrown up by the meta texts of Sci-Fi and released into the popular imagination. Firrell contends that genre frees writers to explore the cultural psyche unconstrained by the limitations of more formal enquiry, free to dabble in mankind's darkest hopes and fears. In choosing the visceral environment of the vaults, Firrell deploys myriad associations acting on the mind of the visitor in a deeply resonant way. This combined with his carefully judged interventions guarantees a thought provoking encounter with our own reactions. Thursday the 10th -Sat the 12th of July, 4pm - 10pm.
