Chloe Lamford: Show Room

From 27 Oct 2017
Great Arch Hall
South Wing

Stage designer and Somerset House Studios artist Chloe Lamford spectacularly transforms the Great Arch Hall in the first of a new series of artist commissions for this main entrance just off the Victoria Embankment.

Lamford’s installation summons a theatrical back-stage to Somerset House itself, with abandoned architectural features, imagined vistas, theatrical props, shimmering curtains and transformative stages that provides visitors the opportunity to be a player in an as-yet-unscripted play.

Chloe Lamford’s work spans theatre, installation, music and opera nationally and internationally. She is associate designer at the Royal Court Theatre, and also regularly designs for the National Theatre and the Young Vic, amongst others.
