Anya Gallaccio

Anya mostly use organic materials results in a natural processes of transformation and decay, her work change over time and unable to predict the result. There are several things about her work I really like. Firstly, I found purity in her work, without alter the nature of the material showing the most pure side of the object. Secondly, her work remind me of the Japanese philosophy Wabi-Sabi, nothing last in the universe, the process is the most beautiful part. I also love the transformation of her work which change over time and the only thing lives is the memory of those that saw and experienced it.

In an interview in 2000 she stated that: ‘[w]e experience so much of the world at a mediated and sanitised distance, so I try to make art that is not complicit with this structure’ (Gallaccio 2000, p.3).
