Rebecca Ackroyd

Cloé Perrone, CURA Magazine (Grrrl Power edition), June 21, 2019

An air of absence lingers in Rebecca Ackroyd’s work like a ghost, reflecting on a time, a bygone era, probably preferable to current times. Her multifaceted art practice encompasses sculpture, drawing, architecture and writing. Interested in the physical connection to loss and absence, she explores construction or misconstruction of cultural and national identity. She erects derelict spaces, imbued with real contexts, recovering the role of the abandoned as a way of raising awareness and consciousness to the forgotten, the path that could have been taken, the road that could have been sketched.
