  • A light touch and a long view

  • Exhibition of sculpture 14 May to 29 June 2007 inThe Crypt, St
  • Pancras Parish Church, Euston Road, London NW1 2BA
  • Daily 10am to 6pm (closed Mondays) Free

    If the aim of art is to transport us to a realm we do not normally inhabit, this exhibition is the perfect vehicle
  • There is something extraordinary, surreal and extra-terrestrial in the ritual descent into the Crypt of St
  • Pancras Parish Church to see these stones
  • The roar of the Euston Road fades out as you step cautiously among vaulted tombs with family legends beginning 'Here lyeth…' The sounds of water dripping, the vaguely audible ethereal music are no doubt recordings but nevertheless chilling
  • What does this artist want to convey?
