Darren Almond: Time Will Tell

Wednesday 28 November 2018Sunday 20 January 2019

New painting and sculpture by Darren Almond focusing on the idea of time and how it is articulated through the language of numbers. Almond was granted access to the Royal Observatory Greenwich to create a sound work recording the working mechanics of the three 18th-century marine timekeepers, designed and built by John Harrison (c.1693-1776). The show also includes a sculptural installation titled Train Plates, an ongoing series which expands the tradition of metal and alloy naming plates that are assigned to British locomotives, spelling out phrases such as the Latin phrase 'Noli timere' (Do not be afraid), the last words of the Irish poet Seamus Heaney.
