Lingering Whispers

“Lingering Whispers” confronts the usual rules governing the display of contemporary art. Far from the dogma of the white cube, in the Crypt of Saint Pancras Church, where the whispers of the memories of 550 souls at rest can still be heard, art blends with the tombstones, relics and mysterious hallways. Once, this ritual space offered a chance to worship the divine, but today this burial chamber celebrates the human. In the Waterloo underground station, Kevin Spacey’s “Tunnel 228” project married theatre and art in 2008. Now, in this catacomb, art and fashion merge. Where else than in vibrant and daring London, under the serene protection of the caryatids, could such an exhibition take place?

The exhibition was curated by Predrag Pajdic. Special thanks to Claudia Seidel.

A catalogue was published to accompany the exhibition.
