Pitzhanger Manor opening exhibition: Anish Kapoor

  • Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The newly restored Pitzhanger Gallery has marked its place as a major cultural venue, with the inaugural exhibition featuring a series of sculptures by Anish Kapoor.

Photographs can’t do this series of curving and disorientating mirrored sculptures justice. The clarity and immersive nature of the dizzying pieces, literally turn the newly restored setting on its head.

The Gallery was good before, it’s world-class now! Congratulations to everyone who’s been involved in the entire project. It really is a showstopper and has added yet another jewel to our mighty suburban Queen’s crown.

Anish Kapoor (b.1954 in Mumbai) has lived and worked in London since the early 1970s. One of the most influential sculptors of his generation, his invention of sculptural language and form has constantly challenged the way we view the world. Large-scale commissions include Marsyas (2002), for the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern, Cloud Gate (2004) in Chicago’s Millennium Park, Leviathan at the Grand Palais, as part of Monumenta (2011) and Orbit (2012) at the Queen Elizabeth Park London.

Anish Kapoor, 16 March 2019 – 18 August 2019, Pitzhanger Gallery

Tickets for Anish Kapoor will be on sale from February 2019.

'Glitter Bunnies'

'Glitter Bunnies'

The beautiful and the bizarre collide in Glitter Bunnies, a blockbuster new joint exhibition from queens of collage Maria Rivans and Bonnie and Clyde, and subversive ceramicist Amy Douglas.

From the dreamscape glamour of Rivans' vintage Hollywood pin-ups to Bonnie and Clyde's ice cream-hued scenes of imagined urban landscapes, this is a joyful celebration of pop culture - with a twist.

Completing the show is Amy Douglas, who re-configures (‘collages together’) broken ceramic figures to create extraordinary objects with radical new narratives.

All three artists create work that challenges surface perfection and entices us to delve deeper into fantastical, immersive worlds.

"There are lots of hidden political nods, and comments on my life and how I see the world we live in today," says Rivans, who cites a 1970s childhood spent soaking up TV and classic movies as key influences on her Pop Art aesthetic. "I'm highly influenced by sci-fi, philosophy and Hitchcock. I talk about life, love, the universe and continually question what it is to be a human living in this strange physical 3D reality.”

Adds Bonnie and Clyde (aka artist Steph Burnley): "I like to add real-life elements that aren't traditionally beautiful but I do find some kind of poetic beauty in them. I often use signage, symbols and words to inject some humour or political edge."

Douglas, who started creating anarchic pieces from broken Staffordshire figurines "for my own amusement", explains: "I just had the urge to do what one should not. Playing with scale and the wrong restoration brings a different dimension to the piece. Seamlessly done, it can trick the viewer to seem as if it were always there. It's about making people look twice."

The whimsical title is "a little much-needed joy in weighted social and political times". Continue Rivans: "It's apt as we all use some sort of glitter finishes in our work.” And in a light-hearted touch that will delight fans of kitsch, she has concealed a vintage bunny in five of her original, one-off collages.

On show, and on sale, will be a range of original, one-off collage pieces and limited edition silkscreen and gliclée prints, as well as Amy Douglas' gilded ceramics. Don't miss this glittering spring show!

Inside the Amazon

This will be an enlightening & truly fascinating evening. Anthropologist & documentary film maker Dr. Howard Reid talks us through his two years living in the Brazilian Amazon, the people, his studies & the politics.

“This is of course a pretty radical departure from the ‘official’ versions of national history but is unquestionably true. We should remember that a little over 500 years ago the WHOLE of the Americas –North, Central and South – were in indigenous hands"

Howard is an anthropologist and award-winning Documentary film maker. He lived with nomadic forest people in the Brazilian Amazon from 1974-76 and on completing his PhD in 1979 he joined BBC Bristol as a researcher for an anthropological film series. He received EMMY honors for his work on the BBC/PBS TV Series The Story of English and a Golden Gate Award for his film about the Tuareg of the Sahara. In all he has made more than 30 documentary films and written 6 best-selling non-fiction books. He is currently Chair of the RAI Film Committee.

'Glitter Bunnies', Meet the Artists - Maria Rivans / Bonnie and Clyde / Amy Douglas

Celebrate the launch of the new exhibition, 'Glitter Bunnies', with an exclusive afternoon viewing at For Arts Sake.

Join the queens of contemporary British collage Maria Rivans, Bonnie and Clyde and subversive ceramics artist Amy Douglas over a glass of wine... and enjoy their stunning group show on its opening weekend.

From the subversive dreamscape meets Pop Art glamour of Rivans’ vintage Hollywood pin-ups to Bonnie and Clyde’s beautiful and bizarre urban psychogeography, 'Glitter Bunnies' fuses the stunning and the surreal.

Rivans and Bonnie and Clyde (aka the artist Steph Burnley) share a Brighton studio and a creative aesthetic that melds the painstaking, handcrafted art of collage with mixed media and the latest digital printing techniques. Both create work that challenges surface perfection and entices us to delve deeper into fantastical, immersive worlds.

They are south coast compatriots of ceramics restorer Douglas, whose radically reimagined Staffordshire figurines – ‘collaged porcelain’ – will also be on display.

This is a relaxed and informal event, which gives art fans the opportunity to find out a little more about the techniques and inspirations behind this exciting trio of artists' work.

The 4 Elements photography exhibition

Free Public Admission

The Ancient Greeks were first to believe that all ‘matter’ was composed of just 4 elements: earth, water, air and fire. Whilst understanding has progressed since then with the discovery of the periodic table, they were long-held beliefs, going back to ancient civilisations.

The images on display in this exhibition present the original Four Elements in all their glory. They successfully convey the life sustaining powers to be found in earth, water, air and fire and the importance of these elements for life on Earth.

THE 4 ELEMENTS is a touring photographic exhibition created and supported by The Photographic Angle.

Please check website prior to attendance for latest information as dates may be subject to change.

Disabled visitors are advised to check with us before visiting an exhibition so that suitable access can be provided.
