Anya Gallaccio: Silver Seed

Anya Gallaccio: Silver Seed
Library Shelf Location 18.GALL
Publication Date 2005

Accompanying Anya Gallacio’s installation at Mount Stuart on the Isle of Bute, this volume collects photographic images of seeds taken with an electro-scanning microscope at the Natural History Museum, London.

In her work, Gallaccio employs natural materials – flowers, fruit, water, grass – to create installations that transform the materials in fantastical and unexpected ways.

The artist’s installation at Mount Stuart features a pine tree where every flake of bark is coated in sparkling silver leaf, and six black-and- white photographs of conifer seeds that are taken with an electro-scanning microscope.

Alongside a poem by Joeri Bakker, the latter is drawn together in this volume to highlight the romantic and dream-like nature of this natural material.
