Rebecca Ackroyd’s sculptures plunge us into a post-apocalyptic fantasy inspired by dark alleys and backrooms. Crafted from low-brow materials, her naked mutant bodies seem asexual: the breasts and vaginas, as if carved by scalpel, reveal blood-red cavities. For the Biennale, the artist continues this series of polymorphous bodies, confronting them with the XXL scale of the Fagor Factory: the bodies become architecture that shifts between wild and domestic spaces, ruin and construction, attraction and disgust.
