Tiffany Zabludowicz has so much art in her two-bedroom SoHo apartment that a perfectly braided loaf of bread on her kitchen counter is immediately suspect: Is that a Claes Oldenburg-style sculpture of a challah, or the thing itself?
Turns out it’s a real loaf. But at least one of the three dozen works in her apartment is indeed food-themed, a cast-resin corncob (2015) by the collective Puppies Puppies.
Ms. Zabludowicz, 25, was born into a prominent London art-buying family. Her parents, Poju and Anita, preside over the Zabludowicz Collection, with holdings of some 4,000 works and an exhibition space in a former Methodist chapel in the Belsize Park neighborhood.
So right out of the gate, Ms. Zabludowicz was an art-world insider. The British artist Tracey Emin is “Auntie Tracey,” said Ms. Zabludowicz in a soft English accent, adding, “We have lunch a lot.”
The spacious apartment — where artists and friends often “crash,” she said — features a papier-mâché sculpture by Ms. Emin, “Concorde III” (2002); Item Idem’s inflatable, spray-painted sculpture of a hot dog “Untitled (Bond Dog),” 2016; and Josephine Meckseper’s large, mixed-media piece “SS22” (2011). Though most works are contemporary, there’s a desk by the French designer Jean Prouvé, a 21st-birthday gift from her parents.
