Installed on the disused platform in a major logistical feat that will be achieved at night over two months, Life Is A Laugh will be the largest work in a public site that Brian Griffiths has made. Over 21,000 people pass through the station each day, making Gloucester Road Underground’s disused platform one of the most visited art spaces in Europe.
