Dedicated readers will remember we announced the last chance to see Seizure, the Turner Prize nominated work by Roger Hiorns in November 2008. A touch early as it turns out: it subsequently reopened six months ago and will close for the final time (so we're told) tomorrow at five.

Within the dilapidated shell of one of Southwark's smaller experiments with low quality concrete homes the artist has transformed the interior of a ground floor flat into a stunning crystalline display. The flat was waterproofed, filled with 70,000 litres of hot copper sulphate solution and sealed. Two and a half weeks later the solution had cooled, they cracked it open, drained out the liquid and revealed the transformed space. Photos don't quite capture the experience but we highly recommend seeing it for yourself.

Somehow, after two years, there were still hundreds of people going to see this today; if you fancy catching the last day go early and be prepared to entertain yourselves while you wait.

Seizure is at 151 - 189 Harper Road, London SE1. Full details here. The final day is tomorrow, 11.00-17.00 (though today the queue closed to new arrivals around 15.30); be prepared for a queue of up to one hour and wear shoes suitable for uneven ground.
