Rebecca Ackroyd, 'The Root' at Zabludowicz Collection

Rebecca Ackroyd takes the structure of existing objects and memories, and reconstructs them in to something new. Often responding directly to the specific architecture of a gallery, Ackroyd’s work inhabits and weaves through rooms. Sculptures in wax, Jesmonite, carpet, metal and felt can take bodily shapes, or reference domestic or industrial elements, such as houses, shutters and vents. Dynamic drawings in pastel on paper act as windows out of these confines into an alternative dream-space. Her installations offer a very personal imaginary landscape, one that pulls the viewer along in a journey through shifting scales and moods, from the arrestingly bold to the subtle and intimate.
