Lars Arrhenius

22 July 2004 – 25 October 2004

Part of the following series:

Gloucester Road Commission

Against the background of the classic London street guide, Swedish artist Lars Arrhenius has created an intricate web of narratives comprising 18 characters in scenarios that evolve through more than 250 illustrations.

These stories traverse and intersect across the map horizontally, vertically and diagonally in a formation reminiscent of the underground network.

From the tragic to the romantic, the absurd to the cynical, the stories encapsulate the complexity of the city in a fresh visual language.

As part of the ongoing Platform for Art programme Lars Arrhenius has reworked A-Z to appear as 10 giant billboards at Gloucester Road station.

In this new manifestation, up to 3 million people will see this fascinating work during its presentation in the station.
