‘Walk On’ brings together artists who make works by undertaking a journey on foot, and this exhibition shows how walking has been the inspiration for artists over decades. Whether making a mark on the landscape itself or mapping and tracing daily journeys, the works in the exhibition share a common and simple starting point – the act of taking a walk.
A Sculptural Banquet: The Secret Society
19/04/2013 to 09/06/2013

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.
