Gold, Platinum and International Patrons: In the studio with Darren Almond
Gold, Platinum and International Patrons are invited to a special evening in the company of Darren Almond in his West London studio to meet the artist and discover the process behind his work.
Patrons will have an insight into Darren Almond’s diverse practice, which incorporates film, installation, sculpture and photography, to produce evocative meditations on time and duration as well as the themes of personal and historical memory.
Many of Almond’s works are filmed in wide ranging – and often inaccessible - geographical locations such as the Arctic Circle, Siberia, the holy mountains in China or the source of the Nile. Almond is interested in the notions of geographical limits and the means of getting there – in particular, culturally specific points of arrival and departure. Since 1998, Almond has been making a series of landscape photographs known as the Fullmoons. Taken during a full moon with an exposure time of 15 minutes or more, these images of remote geographical locations appear ghostly, bathed in an unexpectedly brilliant light where night seems to have been turned into day.
