Turner Prize-winning artist Anish Kapoor’s exhibition is the first to be shown at the gallery since it re-opened in March. It contains a series of sculptures, some previously unseen in Britain, challenging our traditional notion of form and space by disorientating the viewer and transforming their surroundings.
The building’s return to public life marked the completion of a £12million conservation and restoration project led by Ealing Council, working with Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery Trust. Funding came from the council and generous grants obtained from Heritage Lottery Fund, Arts Council England and others.
The Grade 1 listed manor was the home of visionary British architect Sir John Soane, where he experimented with colour and form in the early 1800s to impress potential clients. The ambitious restoration has returned the building to this vision – by reinstating original features like the beautiful glass structures and colourful interiors that became renowned in Georgian London.
Council leader Julian Bell said: “Pitzhanger Manor and Gallery is the crown jewel of Ealing’s heritage and is the successful culmination of a careful and meticulous restoration project. It’s an outstanding piece of cultural history and first class art gallery on our doorstep.”
