Ackroyd & Harvey make inter-disciplinary works that reference memory and time, nature and culture. Their time-based practice evolves through extended research into local political ecologies and anthropogenic climate change.
They have received many international awards for their bio-chemical photographic photosynthesis with living plant material work and have been widely commissioned for their monumental architectural interventions.
Recent exhibitions include: The Hayward Gallery, London (2023) Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston (2023); Blue Star Contemporary, Texas (2023); Kimball Arts Center, Utah (2023); 23RD Biennale of Sydney, Australia (2022); Royal Academy of Arts, London (2022); Somerset House, London (2022); Tate Modern, London (2021); The Ashmolean, Oxford (2018); ARoS Triennale, Denmark (2017); The David Attenborough Building, Cambridge (2016) and more.
In 2019, they co-initiated Culture Declares Emergency in response to the climate and ecological crisis.
