    Details

    Alastair Mackie’s practice explores states of being, often disrupting the order of nature’s processes into new systems which reference both the natural and unnatural worlds and their meeting points. This exhibition survey’s five key works from the artist’s recent practice showcasing Mackie’s seminal 2011 Copse installation, an alluring and uncanny plantation of pine trees, trimmed and positioned on turned ends throughout the gallery space. Alongside this sit House, 2008, a haunting facsimile of a dolls house fabricated from reconstituted wasps nests to his more recent 2014 Canopy and 2015 Mud Form sculptures. In his work is a richness in methodology and ambiguity which positions Alastair Mackie as one of the most interesting sculptors practicing in the UK today.

    Born in 1977, Mackie has shown extensively in the UK and internationally, including exhibitions at the Saatchi Gallery, London, the Venice Biennale and the Reykjavik Art Museum. He has worked on a number of public commissions including Mimetes Anon, commissioned by the Contemporary Art Society for the Economist Plaza in St. James’ – London in 2009. His work is held in collections including: The Olbricht Collection – Berlin, the Salsali Private Museum – Dubai, and the Wellcome Collection – London.
