About

“Anya Gallaccio is known for ambitious sculptural projects involving trees, plants and architecture”
The New York Times

NOW is the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art’s dynamic three-year series of contemporary art exhibitions. The fifth instalment in the series is centred on a major survey of work by Anya Gallaccio.

The Paisley-born artist, who was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2003 and was a prominent figure in the Young British Artists generation, is renowned for her spectacular installations and sculptures. Using all kinds of organic materials, including trees, flowers, candles, sand and ice, she creates temporary works that change over time as they are subjected to natural processes of transformation and decay. Gallaccio also makes more permanent artworks in bronze, ceramics, stainless steel and stone that attempt to capture or arrest these processes. Exploring themes of change, growth and decay, some of the other artists appearing in NOW are French artist Aurélien Froment, sculptor and installation artist Roger Hiorns and Scottish artist Charles Avery.
