Exhibition dates: 16th September - 22nd October
For Piecework, the fifth exhibition in Oriel Wrecsam’s PERICLO series, James Ackerley will present an installation as a twisted yet refined paradigm of his studio. Ackerley’s meticulous process-led practice will come to the fore in this enlightening display-cum-physical catalogue. His recent work puts a strong emphasis on the studio as a place of making, taking-apart and reassembling. Using a narrow palette of inexpensive, malleable materials, he makes small scale object-based works as a method of exploring the fundamental principles of art making and studio-practice, whilst also drawing elements from design and architecture. The exhibition timeline will be separated into three increments, reflecting the very modular and incomplete nature of Ackerley’s work.
James Ackerley (b. Wrexham, 1990) is a Manchester-based artist, who previously studied at Coleg Cambria, Wrexham, and Manchester Metropolitan University. He currently holds a studio at Bankley Studios, Manchester.
