This exhibition by Julian Opie created for Pitzhanger features sculptures, paintings, films and installations that focus on people, buildings and animals.

Opie is recognisable for his distinctive and refined graphic style, distilling the visual information of everyday life and reality to a universal language of symbols and signs. Like John Soane, Opie reflects a wide range of influences and art-historical references within his work.

The centrepiece of the exhibition is a mixed media French village landscape, inviting the visitor to explore imaginary spaces from multiple viewpoints.

The exhibition will be complemented by artworks in the public grounds outside the front of the manor and facing Walpole Park at the rear. It is the first exhibition programmed both in the gallery and outdoors.

This exhibition was supported by a Respond and Reimagine grant from Art Fund.
