6 March–26 June 2016
The Museum Sinclair-Haus presents Darren Almond’s photographic and video works in a solo exhibition ‘Shadow and Light’. The featured works encompass a range of regions and landscapes, demonstrating the artist’s long-standing exploration of time, light and space.
Almond’s photographs follow the landscape tradition of William Turner and Caspar David Friedrich whilst simultaneously transforming their romantic motifs. The exhibition includes Almond's ongoing 'Fullmoon' series. Taken under the light of the moon, Almond uses long exposures to capture his subject matter, allowing details undetectable to the eye to be revealed.
The artist’s video works focus on human beings. In Bearing (2007), Almond follows a sulphur miner working in Java, Indonesia, using a high definition camera to document the labourer’s daily journeys.
