A peep into darkness. Medusa awakes from her slumber. Ingleby Gallery and EIFF present a silent film by artist David Austen, installed in the magical interior of The Burns Monument on Regent road. The Gorgon’s Dream Austen's haunting interpretation of Benevenuto Cellini's small bronze sculpture of the head of Medusa. A rare opportunity to step inside one of Edinburgh's architectural gems to experience a fragment of myth, to discover a time and space where tender darkness reigns.

The Burns Monument,
Regent Road, (next to New Calton Burial Ground, EH7 5BL)
