William Blake's Mystic Map of London at Keats House
Inspired by the visionary poet and artist William Blake, this art project by Louisa Albani travels with him as he wanders through his native London. Blake's response to the destruction, rebuilding and transformation of late eighteenth-century London was to imaginatively create a symbolic city, a new 'Jerusalem'. From Golden Square near to his childhood home, to the 'bar of gold' that is the River Thames, Blake unveils his 'golden city' for the future, inspired by an arcane past.
