Roger Ackling (b. 1947, London, d. 2014) lived and worked in Norfolk, England. Ackling studied at St. Martin’s College of Art from 1965-1968. His work challenges traditional notions of sculptural production. Ackling’s used pre-existing, recycled/upcycled materials and harnesses light from the sun through glass to transfer energy in the form of heat to create marks. Roger Ackling’s work has been included in many public collections including Tate, British Museum, V&A as well as Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh, The Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam and Tokyo Metropolitan Museum. He was recently one of the invited artists working in collaboration with particle and theoretical physicists at CERN European Organisation for Nuclear Research.
