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's work has been exhibited internationally, including solo exhibitions at Tate London (2003); Palazzo delle Papesse, Siena (2005); Sculpture Center, New York (2006); Camden Art Centre, London (2008); and Artpace, San Antonio (2013). She will have a solo exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego opening in July 2015 as well as a forthcoming solo exhibition at MASS MoCA in North Adams, MA. In 2003, Gallaccio was shortlisted for the prestigious Turner Prize. Her work is included in numerous public and private collections, including the Tate, London; Victoria & Albert Museum, London; and Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney. The artist lives and works in San Diego, California.
