English art collector, Anita Zabludowicz has opened up a project space to show her extensive collection of both English and international art in London, including works by Norwegian artist Eline McGeorge.

The space 176, located at 176 Prince of Wales Road in London, was originally a Methodist chapel built in 1867 and since served numerous functions and has been modestly refurbished to house the collector’s collection and shows that she intends to put on there. The space will also have an artist and curator residency, hosting one of each a year. The inaugural show, which opened on 20 September and is curated by collection curator Elizabeth
Neilson. It is entitled ‘An Archaeology’ and features mostly women from Zabludowicz collection. Artists include, in addition to Eline McGeorge, Candice Breitz, Susan Collis, Liz Craft, Varda Caivano, Claire Hooper, Laura Lima, Renata Lucas, Goshka Macuga, Katy Moran, Eva Rothschild, Eva Sussman and the Rufus Corporation, Pae White and others.

A limited edition book comprising specially produced works by the artists featured in An Archaeology has been published on the occasion of this exhibition, and is available from the 176 bookshop.

Eline McGeorge has her background in sculpture, animation and drawing, all brought into the exhibition’s dramaturgy. Fundamental to McGeorge is the use of low-tech materials and a sober artistic language, nevertheless opening up for visionary and transcendent possibilities.
