> DESCRIPTION

A new exhibition exploring the power of buildings to unsettle or intimidate. The exhibition takes inspiration from a variety of buildings, architectural forms and unusual and everyday locations, presenting photography, painting and film of sites as varied as a shadowy cemetery, looming industrial gasholders, underground tunnels, deserted homes after a hurricane, melancholy housing estates and the London streets where Jack the Ripper murdered his victims.

It explores how buildings can carry the weight of their own histories, sometimes becoming saddled with an affecting atmosphere due to events which have taken place within or around them.
