Turner Contemporary will present the largest survey exhibition of Anya Gallaccio’s practice to date
Open Wednesday to Sunday 10am – 5pm (plus Bank Holidays)
Exploring her radical rethinking of the relationship between art and environment over the past 30 years, the exhibition will also celebrate and connect to Kent’s natural heritage.
Gallaccio creates site specific sculptures and installations often using organic materials such as flowers, apples and trees, that naturally transform and decay over the duration of display. Inherently interested in the process of making and the physical qualities of materials, Gallaccio has shifted the boundaries of what sculpture could be and embraces the unpredictable results this brings.
A new commission will be presented alongside works from throughout her career.
The exhibition will be accompanied by An Apple A Day, a wide-reaching schools programme.
