Rebecca Ackroyd

From 4 December 2019 to 31 January 2020, the Foundation hosts the solo exhibition of Rebecca Ackroyd (UK, 1987).

Project Room #12
Rebecca Ackroyd

For the 2019 cycle of the Project Rooms, curated by Cloé Perrone, the Foundation presents three young international artists: Sophia Al-Maria, Caroline Mesquita and Rebecca Ackroyd.

None of these artists can be called a sculptress; each one uses the artistic medium within a multidisciplinary practice, expanding the definition of sculpture itself. Not treating it as a result but as a process, sculpture becomes a tool for building spatial environments of various kinds. The 2019
Project Rooms deal with issues of contemporary life and socio-cultural phenomena such as misogyny, apocalypse and national identity.

The installations, sculptures and drawings by
Rebecca Ackroyd (1987, UK) mix the brutality of the urban environment with the dream world, in a balance between everyday life and pure imagination. At first glance, her installations appear raw and brutal spaces, but gradually, they become places of protection and rescue. Her work is based on the principle of inclusion: amalgamating ideas and processes, the artist builds new visual and conceptual connections, also emphasizing the importance of the unknown.
The concept of belonging, and especially that of national identity determined by the place of birth and the sharing of the feeling of nationality, are recurring themes in her artistic practice. Her sculptures reflect on one side his family relationships, especially that with his mother, and on the other, a more general view: images of flags, contraceptive pills, flowers, spaces in which the artist manages to intersect different contents.
Working with different, unrelated contexts, Ackroyd creates shapeless narratives where individual confusions make their way into global experiences.
