The Minotaur

In Greek myth, the tale of The Minotaur is a fascinating one; a tragic, dark love story about a beast – half man, half bull living off the bodies of young, fair, unwed maidens, buried deep in a specially-designed labyrinth.

The Old Vic tunnels beneath Waterloo are currently home to a temporary Lazarides gallery. Bar far the most exciting of yesterday’s visits, both the collection and the setting mold themselves perfectly around the Minotaur story. The dark, intensely damp air in the underground tunnels was an eerie setting; we saw some stuff we really liked (Boxi, Connor Harrington…) and some that we strongly didn’t, it was brilliant. Head down there for a unique art-experience.

Quote of the catalogue has to be: When asked about his piece Vermin Death Star, David Falconer famously replied ‘It would cost £70,000, but that’s only about £4 per rat.’…!
