In Every Dream Home
In Every Dream Home presents a series of paintings by Caroline Walker in her first solo exhibition within a public space.
This summer, London-based Scottish painter Caroline Walker brings images of sun-drenched swimming pools and opulent architecture to PM Gallery & House within her bold, theatrical paintings.
These idyllic domestic scenes are populated by women from all walks of life and depicting exclusively women to date, Walker explores the relationship between gender and architecture. Directing actors to play the roles of mother, daughter, friend, lover, owner or housekeeper or holiday maker, there is a sense of unease that permeates her staged scenes causing us to question our expectations about the identity and roles of women in relation to house and home.

Marking the Line: Ceramics and Architecture
Contemporary ceramic artists present site-specific installations in the home of Sir John Soane.
Following showings at the Sir John Soane’s Museum and Port Eliot, Marking the Line comes to Pitzhanger Manor as the final venue in its tour of Soane-designed buildings. Abstract architectural ceramics and sculpture will be installed throughout the historic house responding to and complimenting Soane’s characteristic domed ceilings, convex mirrors and playful use of light
Mixing the historical and the contemporary, Christie Brown creates sculptural reinterpretations of Soane family portraits and Nicholas Rena introduces bold abstract forms and powerful contemporary colours. Carina Ciscato creates delicate vessels in need of discovery whilst conversely Clare Twomey will fill the empty spaces with one thousand white bone china bowls inscribed with quotations on the subject of legacy.
EVENTS: Saturday 10 August at 2pm – Exhibition Tour (free)
