This large scale digital film installation, created for Lazarides' Hell’s Half Acre exhibition in 2010, was inspired by Dante Alighieri’s Inferno. The Heretics’ Gate represents Dante’s entry point into the Sixth Circle of Hell, where non-believers burn for eternity in furnace-like tombs. The fiery, ectoplasmic forms were created with liquid and light.
The score is by UNKLE (J Lavelle, P Clements and J Griffith).
