SUNLIGHT is the first major survey of the work of British artist Roger Ackling (1947-2014) and the most significant exhibition of his work to date. For 50 years, Ackling consistently made objects by burning wood – focussing sunlight through the lens of a hand-held magnifying glass to scorch repeated patterns of lines on the surface. Like his contemporaries Richard Long and Hamish Fulton, Ackling challenged the traditional methods of making sculpture by taking his art out of the studio and into the landscape environment.
SUNLIGHT will introduce Ackling’s work to a new generation of audiences, prompting important conversations about the status of the object, the significance of material, the processes of making and the transformative power of display.
