Inspired by the landscape on which the British military conducted its early experiments in flight, Anya Gallaccio created a new installation for the Aldeburgh Festival’s SNAP visual arts programme during June 2014 at Orford Ness. This was part of the Artists in Residence programme.
Moderated by Karsten Lund. Each of the artists discuss his or her work and their investigations of the material world through photography or sculpture.
Anya Gallaccio returned to Jupiter Artland in 2014 with her second gallery installation 'Stroke', which assaults the senses. The entire room is covered in thick dark chocolate, lightly scented if not overwhelming. The desire to interact by picking, licking or stroking the chocolate covered walls is almost compulsive. What is beautiful, as so often in this artist's practice, becomes putrid and decayed.
