14 - 29 June 2014

ALDEBURGH FESTIVAL

Anya Gallaccio

Inspired by the landscape on which the British military conducted its early experiments in flight, Scottish-born artist Anya Gallaccio exhibited a new work in two locations in Suffolk – at Orford Ness and at Snape Maltings.

During the First World War the recently-formed Royal Flying Corps conducted trials in aerial photography and bombing at secret testing grounds on Orford Ness, to which the artist returned for her contribution to 14-18 NOW.

Using images of imploded material taken from the site, original aerial photographs from IWM’s archive and the region’s constantly shifting shingle landscape, Gallaccio created a spectacular installation and a series of photographic images that drew on her fascination with the properties of organic matter and the forces of decay and destruction.

Co-commissioned by 14-18 NOW and Aldeburgh Music’s SNAP visual arts programme, with the support of the National Trust.
