An artist inspired by the new Planet of the Apes film has opened an exhibition of five underground spaces transformed in Waterloo,
Entry to the It Ends Here at The Vaults in Leake Street is free from today (July 10) until Saturday (July 12) from 4pm to 10pm.
The work by Martin Firrell mines popular culture for insights into the conditions for war or peace, happy co-existence or mutual annihilation – themes which crop up in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
The film, starring New Cross’ Gary Oldman, is out July 17.
Martin said: “With IT ENDS HERE, my intention was to explore the deeper value of Planet of the Apes’ particular corner of pop culture, locating truths that cast light on our attempts to live humanely in an over-crowded and tension-filled world.”
“I have an interest in popular culture as a mass disseminator of good ideas – drawing attention to the deeper value in popular culture and encouraging people to look at it with a greater appreciation of its possible meaning”.
