Behind Closed Doors - Subterranean Unearthed

Graphic artist and videographer Matthew Barton brings us his next instalment of explorative installation this Saturday at Shunt. Aptly set in the bowel of London Bridge, close to London Dungeons, the show examines the dynamics of abandoned spaces. Video images beam out into the darkness providing a glimpse into the subterranean underworld of London; it's metal heartbeat providing audio stimulation. Our eyes wander deep into forgotten shafts, tunnels and walkways, unearthing engineering, steel, cable presenting the belly of the beast. The work is a collaboration between Luke Harris and Matthew Barton as part of a showcase for Goldsmiths Electronic Music Studio and forms part of a wider night of music, interactive performance and art.
