Specific Ideas: A Conversation with Rebecca Ackroyd

Thomas Ellmer, Sculpture Magazine, November 4, 2021

Since graduating from the Royal Academy in 2015, Rebecca Ackroyd has emerged as one of the most exciting artists in the U.K. Working across sculpture, drawing, and painting, she creates installations that bring together the body, architecture, and sexuality in nightmarish and uncanny ways, excavating memory and history to confront the viewer with new notions of femininity and power. Ackroyd’s most recent investigations, exploring her unconscious dreams, were recently shown in “100mph,” her second solo exhibition at Peres Projects in Berlin.
