Artist Bio

Anya Gallaccio

Anya Gallaccio (b. 1963, Scotland) attended Kingston Polytechnic and Goldsmiths College at the University of London. Gallaccio creates site-specific installations, often using organic materials as her medium.  Past projects have included arranging a ton of oranges on a floor, placing a thirty-two ton block of ice in a boiler room, and painting a wall with chocolate.  The nature of these materials results in natural processes of transformation and decay, often with unpredictable results.


Gallaccio has exhibited extensively on an international level, including solo exhibitions at the Tate London (2003); Sculpture Center, New York (2006); Camden Art Centre, London (2008); and Eastshire Museum, Scotland (2010), among others. In 2003, Gallaccio was shortlisted for the prestigious Turner Prize. Gallaccio’s work is featured in numerous public and private collections, including the Tate Gallery, London; Victoria & Albert Museum, London; Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney; and South Gallery, London. The artist lives and works in San Diego, California.
