Anya Gallaccio

Born 1963 Paisley, Scotland

Gallaccio's work is concerned with constant change and the effects of time. Using a wide range of materials such as cut flowers, fruit, chocolate, ice, burning candles and salt, there is an inevitable impermanence about her work. Her approach most commonly involves setting up an installation which then evolves through the process of decay and disintegration. 

Locus+ have commissioned two projects with Anya Gallaccio; Two Sisters, 1998; Repens, 2000; and published her first book Anya Gallaccio Chasing Rainbows in 1999.
