Fairy tales pulsed with sex, death and the mysteries of the wild before Disney got hold of them. Seven artists working with raw fairy tale material (no fair wondering if they are sneezy, grumpy, or happy…) are showing work in the crypt of St. Pancras, one of London’s largest churches. Nadege Meriau, Kirsty Whiten, Rachel Thorlby, Anna Howarth, Carole Chebron, Emily Glass and Daniela Jaglenka Terrazzini explore the darker side of fairytales, particularly the awakening sexuality of adolescent women within these stories. Hours are limited, so be sure to check the Web site for information before you visit.
