Rebecca Ackroyd

Rebecca Ackroyd's works delve into subtle examinations of human bodies, memory of the subconscious, and dimensions of sexuality in space. She synthesizes elements of abstraction and figuration into a coherent but enigmatic language, often materialized in complex installations and body-like sculptures.

A solo exhibition of Ackroyd’s work, Mirror Stage, took place as a collateral event of the 60th Biennale Arte, Venice, in 2024.
