British installation artist Anya Gallaccio, now living in San Diego, works largely with natural materials—typically flowers, trees, sugar and salt—to create often site-specific installations focusing on the decomposition and transformation of the organic materials. Gallaccio’s work shifts between minimal approaches to form and a highly intuitive process. This exquisite monograph catalogues the artist’s work over 20 years of her impressive career (she was one of the Young British Aartists from the 1980’s, short-listed for the Turner Prize, withexhibitions at the Stedelijk and the TATE Britain). Numerous essays explore Gallaccio’s work; also includes an artist interview by Clarrie Wallis, andtexts by Lucía Sanromán, who investigates the role of the landscape; Norman Bryson analyzing the notion of ‘psychic fantasy’ in the installation blessed; Briony Fer, who discusses the artist’s use of natural light and earth; and Jan van Adrichem looking at Gallaccio’s move to bronze casts.
