AN ART show with a difference is opening at Bethnal Green Library.

Artists Sol Archer, Kieran Drury, Sarah McNulty, Alaena Turner have spent a week in the former lecture hall and reading room upstairs in the library in Cambridge Heath Road.

Sarah McNulty said that the mixed media show featuring paintings, photos, projections and objects placed around the room has been inspired by the space.

She said: "It's about shifting landscapes."

The show is called Tilsandede, from a Danish word meaning 'covered over in sound'.

Ms McNulty said the group have enjoyed working in the library. "I just stumbled on this space, it's really nice to show art works here. The light is different from an art gallery and the show is quite minimal with some subtle interventions and very small projections."

The group have put together an eight page hand-bound book of images, accompanied by original artworks which will be available at the show.

The free exhibition will be open to the public during library opening hours from 9am to 8pm on Tuesday May 25 and on Thursday May 27 and from 9am to 6pm on Friday May 28 and between 9am and 5pm on Saturday May 29.
