Sculptor and figurative artist Cathie Pilkington creates a new installation throughout Pallant House, working with the gallery's collections.
Installed throughout the historic domestic spaces at Pallant House Gallery, Cathie Pilkington's new installation, Working From Home, blurs distinctions between public and private, work and home.
A series of over 30 of her assembled doll-like sculptures, including three especially created new works, will be placed alongside the artist’s personal selection from the Gallery’s extensive collection of Modern British art.
The works selected by Pilkington will deal with themes around domesticity, mother and child, surrealism and psychoanalysis. Hanging in the four rooms of the original townhouse so that they work in dialogue with the artist’s sculptures, these will include works by Eileen Agar, Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore, Hans Feibusch, Alfred Wallis, Scottie Wilson, Paula Rego and Lord Snowdon’s portraits of artists.
