Drift

2003

The Uncanny Room, Pitzhanger Manor, London

Drift was made in response to Pitzhanger Manor, Sir John Soane’s country house in Ealing, for The Uncanny Room exhibition. The pattern on the ceiling in the drawing room was appliquéd onto fine silk and installed in the vestibule. Sir John Soane has spent many years travelling, collecting antiquities from Greece, Rome and other places. Drift recognized the idea of displacement and goods brought to rest in a different place.
