Artists at Home: Erin O’Keefe

Overview

Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery present Artists at Home, a new series of displays across the magnificent setting of Sir John Soane’s Manor. This carefully curated programme will explore the interplay between inspiring contemporary art and the exquisite details of the grade-I listed historic building, echoing Soane’s own passion for interweaving his living spaces with his beloved art collection.

Once home to works by illustrious artists such as Canaletto and Turner, Pitzhanger Manor is ready to return to the same stimulating atmosphere, presenting contemporary art by Erin O’Keefe, an artist celebrated for challenging and redefining spatial perception, against its intimate domestic backdrop.

Based in New York, O’Keefe’s artistic practice is shaped by her dual expertise in architecture and photography. Her vibrant photographs are set to animate the Manor, striking a fascinating balance between contemporary aesthetics and the Manor’s rich historical ambience.

Highlighted by Frieze for her “dizzying triumphs of aesthetic engineering” and by Art Forum for producing artworks that “induce the pure retinal pleasure”, O’Keefe’s work harmoniously merges photography and architecture. Her captivating geometrical compositions, with bold colour palettes and visual tensions, blur the line between three-dimensional space and two-dimensional imagery, a transformative play that lies at the core of her work.

Just as Sir John Soane used the Georgian Eating Room and the Small Drawing Room at Pitzhanger for intimate gatherings, business interactions, and exhibiting art, Erin O’Keefe’s thought-provoking photographs will inhabit these spaces, instilling them with the creative energy and visual curiosity that were dear to Soane.

Join us at Pitzhanger for the inaugural Artists at Home: Erin O’Keefe. This immersive experience presents a one-of-a-kind opportunity to engage with O’Keefe’s transformative work within the uniquely historical ambience of Sir John Soane’s Manor. Experience the fusion of the modern and neo-classical, and the ongoing dialogue between art, architecture and history.
