Exhibition: The Ethics of Dust


Yes I know the name is like some dodgy 4AD band from the 80s, swathed in dry ice and reverb, but this is actually a very cool exhibition. Born out of the cleaning of Westminster Hall (in the Houses of Parliament) the artwork is a 50-metre-long translucent latex sheet, created when artist, architect and conservationist Jorge Otero-Pailos made a cast of the walls as centuries of grime was pulled form them. What’s left is a negative of the structure, embedded with hundreds of years of soot and grime. It’s a contemplative (and surprisingly beautiful) piece; a microscopic record of giant world events and people. Tickets are free but you do need to book in advance.
