Hangover Square

1 Jan 2012

Set in the seamy watering holes of Earls Court and a rain-swept Brighton on the cusp of World War II, Hangover Square is widely regarded as Patrick Hamilton’s masterpiece. To mark the 50th anniversary of the author’s death this unique art installation revisits his bleak hymn to obsessive desire.

Two inextricably linked interiors form the heart of the exhibition - a smart Brighton hotel room and a seedy London flat where the climactic crime scene is reimagined. Offering connections and clues to the rest of this darkly comic novel, the exhibition also allows the viewer to weave their own narratives upon the empty rooms.

Devised and created by Cinecity and designer/artist Anna Deamer with students from the University of Brighton and City College.

Created for Cinecity’s 10th anniversary. Presented by Cinecity. Commissioned by HOUSE 2012. Supported by Arts Council England. Co-produced with the University of Brighton.
