In this film, Julie Mehretu and David Adjaye discuss their collaboration at White Cube Bermondsey with Tim Marlow. Mehretu and Adjaye talk about how the form of the installation for Mehretu's exhibition developed from their initial vision of creating a time-based experience for two-dimensional works. Their discussion highlights the importance of creating specific environments for painting to enable a bodily readjustment of the viewer in space and a durational experience that incorporates both active viewing and moments of stillness.
