The Bussey Building, a disused warehouse located in Peckham is being revisited for an interactive installation called Black/Light with the London-based artist collective, Robots>>>>, together with ROA and Phlegm. Our London correspondent, Butterfly, was there to capture the opening.

The outer of the building has been decorated with the distinctive animals from Belgian artist, ROA. Large scale monochrome characters and designs from British artist, Phlegm, complement ROA’s animals perfectly. As you enter the building into darkness, you are immediately handed a torch, inviting you to tentatively and quietly explore and discover the contents of the space. Shadows, ghostly figures  and acoustic sounds, combined with projections create a feeling of total disorientation. Walking around we can identify a multitude of objects, animals, figures that form a hidden city. —Butterfly
