New Works by British Artist Darren Almond at White Cube


LONDON.- White Cube Mason’s Yard presents an exhibition of new works entitled ‘The Principle of Moments’ by British artist Darren Almond. Known for works that meditate on notions of time, landscape and travel, as well as political and historical memory, Almond brings these themes together in two bodies of work: a series of time-lapse photographs taken in the Faroe Islands, and a film installation shot in northern Siberia. ‘Anthropocene: The Prelude’, is a new three screen film installation which continues Almond’s ongoing interest in the city of Norilsk, about which he first began making works in 2002. Originally a gulag, Norilsk is now predominantly an industrial city that mines large amounts of valuable ores in particular nickel. On entering the basement gallery, the viewer is confronted with a pair of vertical, floor-to-ceiling screens
