Key artists and exhibits
- The venue runs an on-going programme of exhibitions of professional contemporary art, which are often sited in both the Manor-House and Gallery.
The Secret Society: A Sculptural Banquet
Casting directly from real objects, Kathy Dalwood inventively combines modern materials with the tradition of the plaster bust to create her unique sculptural characters. Their remarkable costumes – constructed from materials as diverse as model buildings, haberdashery and plumbing and electrical parts, as well as lace, fabrics, buttons and braids – reference classical and contemporary architecture whilst also displaying the influence of the world of extreme sculptural fashion.
This large-scale installation in the Soane Suite at Pitzhanger Manor will see her characters enjoying a luxurious banquet, with everything from exotic fruits to decanters of wine transformed into bright white plaster.
