When we walk into a library, we expect to be taken on a journey. Whatever the book, it will transport us into a world that is not our own: another time, another country, another planet, or another reality. We will journey through this world exploring characters, landscapes, and various situations.

But if you walk into Holborn Library, you will be taken on a journey without even picking up a book. Up until the 30th November, you can delve into the work of Brazilian artist, Jose Damasceno. The sculptor has created his first site specific project using marble, clay, and wood, in response to the library's history.

Holborn Library is home to an auditorium on the top floor, but the space is no longer used. It was once the venue for screenings of Monty Python and Hammer Horror films, which form the basis of Damasceno's PLOT exhibition. Damasceno was inspired by a variety of other seemingly unconnected things such as London's architecture and social history, the fifteenth/sixteenth century English physician, William Harvey, and author Jonathan Swift, which he has used to create a disorienting realm within the library space.

The installation is available to see until the 23rd November, and includes Monday evening discussions for £7 or £5 concessions.
