In Light of Time exhibition
Open from 10am to 6pm each day, Jesus College is pleased to host In Light of Time - a new exhibition of work from Turner Prize nominee Darren Almond.
The works on display include a photographic representation of the stars visible from the Southern Hemisphere; a set of paintings using conductive metal pigments that seem to hesitate between revealing and concealing the workings of a numerical system; and a set of sculptural plaques bearing verbal messages that are as emphatic as they are mysterious.
Across all media – film, photography, painting, sculpture, audio-installation – the work of Darren Almond hovers over the puzzle of time and how it is understood, measured, sensed and represented. Time is the dimension in which we confront our own limitations as individuals, families, societies, species; but it is also the medium in which we grow and learn to collaborate in coming to terms with those limitations and what they can teach us.
Shortlisted for the Turner Prize in 2005, Almond's work featured in Charles Saatchi's 1997 Sensation show and has been exhibited across the world.
Free to attend and open daily, the exhibition is located in our West Court Gallery.
