SEIZURE ART - Extended Opening

Here are some photos (I took them with my iphone) from Seizure by Roger Hiorns. My friend Kerry told me about this piece.

After taking the tube to Elephant and Castle we donned wellies and went inside a tiny council flat. All the surfaces have been covered in copper sulphate crystals.

The flat is very small and destined for destruction on a condemned housing estate. The Crystals physically bring the walls in closer around you, magnifying the reality of the small living space. The glittering blue crystals give a grotto like experience in an unlikely space.

Seizure was due to close on 2nd November but I've just heard that opening has been extended until 30th November.
