If You Lived Here: Homage to Soane
Emily Allchurch created If You Lived Here: Homage to Soane especially for our Artists for Pitzhanger initiative. It reworks the section featuring Pitzhanger Manor from her bravura artwork Grand Tour: In Search of Soane (after Gandy) (2012), presenting Sir John Soane's extant architectural projects as though models in a room, which was originally created for the exhibition ‘Sense of Soane’ at Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery, before its restoration in 2015. Since then Grand Tour: In Search of Soane has shown at, among other places, the RA Summer Exhibition (2013) and her solo exhibition ‘Visions of Architectural Fancy’ at the Sir John Soane Museum in 2018.
Allchurch considers her homages to Sir John Soane as two of her most important works, instigating her further exploration into the architectural capriccio.

“I was really inspired by Soane’s visionary use of light in his interiors, and the way he uses light to create such dramatic, intriguing and inventive spaces” - Emily Allchurch
