Gallery owner Steve Lazarides’ latest exhibition Bedlam in association with HTC at the Old Vic Tunnels runs until the 21 October. The Lazarides Gallery relishes in fusing art and the experiential, and this show perhaps one of the gallery’s darkest to date. Inspired by a historic mental asylum just 500 yards away from the underground venue, Lazarides has used the tunnel’s atmosphere to display the work of artists such as Doug Foster, who’s hypnotic virtual mandala projected onto the tunnel’s celling can gaze at whilst lying on a fake bed of grass. Now a resident exhibitor at Lazarides shows, Antony Miscallef’s mutilated self-portraits dismantle the dark depths of the human psyche. Bedlam exhibition runs until the 21 October.
