Anne-Marie is working with the Sir John Soane's Museum (London) and Animate Projects (UK) on a solo exhibition for the Foyle Project Room at the Museum in the Autumn/ Winter of 2018. The working title is 'Dear Eliza, the mourning room' and will be produced by Gary Thomas, co-Director of Animate Projects (and Film Officer with the British Council), with partners Arcminute architectural visualisers, and others.
The project will explore the subject of lost bedchamber of Eliza Soane, the wife of John Soane, within the Soanes Museum, London. John Soane had preserved the room for nearly 20 years until shortly before his death, mindful of his legacy, he finally emptied the room to create the well known Model Room within the museum. This new animation and printed sculpture will build on and extend research by Helen Dorey, Acting Director and Inspectress at the Soane Museum, on the subject of the museums private apartments, which were reconstructed in 2015.
As Eliza Soane's bedchamber cannot be recorded by conventional means Anne-Marie will be working with a team of digital archeologists and architectural visualisers to make an immersive work that explores the relationship between animation and mourning, which will also feature a collaboration with a composer.
More information will be posted about this project as details are confirmed.
