Adam Dant’s From The Library Of Dr London

Adam Dant continues to astonish with his unusual maps of London and other cities. His latest show opens tonight at Hales Gallery within the TEA building on Bethnal Green Road. This time round, he’s depicted European capitals in a bevy of inventive ways. The title piece shows London as an anatomical diagram, with Whitehall at the throat and Whitechapel in the anus (some might argue he’s got them the wrong way round but, hey, that’s art). Spitalfields Life blog, long a champion of Dant’s work, has other preview images.

From The Library Of Dr London is in private view tonight, and runs 7 September to 6 October at Hales Gallery, Tea Building, 7 Bethnal Green Road, London E1 6LA. Entrance is free.
