Cathie Pilkington @ Pallant House Gallery

8 December 2018 - 31 March 2019

Sculptor Cathie Pilkington RA explores the relationship between personal collections and public display co-opting works from the gallery’s collection to sit alongside more than 30 of her own figurative constructions. Selected works include Eileen Agar, Henry Moore, Paula Rego, Victor Willing, and a series of Lord Snowdon’s arresting portraits of women artists that form an anchor in the curation of each room.
Suggesting themes of motherhood, privacy, domesticity and the unconscious, this dialogue with the collection and architecture is the gallery’s most ambitious contemporary intervention to date.  Sculptural works especially created for the show are – a series of ‘Pietas’ ; the other, Good-Bed-Bad-Bed, a sculptural occupation of the gallery’s Hepplewhite four poster bed.
