Phoebe Ackers (b.1997) UK.

Phoebe Ackers is a British artist who currently lives and works in North Yorkshire. She has recently graduated from the University of the Arts in London, where she received a degree in Fine Art, Sculpture.

 

Presenting and curating work mainly across the UK, she is best known for her witty exploration of modern-day feminist issues. By working mainly in textiles, her latest work explores themes relating to the female body in the form of Soft Sculpture. Although comforting to look at, the context behind these works illustrates an investigation into the problems surrounding social media, male gaze, body positivity and diet culture.
