In the first project by London Munich Exchange [LME], 13 British and German artists descend into The Crypt beneath St Pancras to stage “Ruins of Time”, an exhibition of contemporary art that explores “time and its specific expression in the architecture of the site”. From 25 through 30 November 2015.

“built through contradictory forces…erected by its very ruin”

Like many of the old churches in London, beneath St Pancras Parish Church lies a basement crypt, which might serve as chapel, place of internment, or the deep dark place in which to store stuff the church doesn’t need above ground. In 2002, this small network of caverns under St Pancras, still a burial site for 500-odd infinite sleepers, also became an unusual contemporary art space aptly named The Crypt Gallery.
