SNAP - Art at the Aldeburgh Festival

Inspired by the landscape on which the British military conducted its early experiments in flight, Scottish-born artist Anya Gallaccio created a new installation for the Aldeburgh Festival’s SNAP visual arts programme during June 2014 at Orford Ness. This was part of the Artists in Residence programme.

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