Lilian and the Angels

St Pancras Station

Client: Northern Adventures Lead artist: Anne Bean

Whilst St Pancras Station was shrouded in dust-sheets during renovation, Anne Bean explored the building with a view to using xenon projections onto the sheets. The project was the first use of large scale projections onto buildings in London and has caused great public reaction. The many statues of women on the façade were in various stages of decrepitude with missing and disfiguring facial features. With twisted echoes of Oscar Wilde’s Dorian Gray, Anne decided to photograph these statues alongside local women who were approximately the same age, posing in the same way. The project used electronic microscope photography of the stone and skin as well as magic lantern imagery from the Museum of Moving Image to complete a work on changing materiality as well as technologies.
