No Heroics, Please

Captain Lightfoot presented their first exhibition No Heroics, Please (funded by the Hope Scott Trust) to a London audience in the Crypt of St Pancreas Church, Euston.

 

With it's beautiful and eerie architecture of low arches, maze-like corridors, brick work walls and ruined-tombs; dominantly but peacefully sharing it's history and stories with who ever enters, the crypt acted as a most striking and intimate location to explore the relationship between space, artwork and the viewer. 

 

With a particular focus on how the viewer can be led through an exhibition and experience art work in an 'unconventional' gallery space. No Heroics, Please evolved into an exploration of how an artwork can stand by itself as a self-contained object, whilst simultaneously absorbing and playing with or against the distinct characters and essence of the building it occupies.
