Darren Almond

In his films, photographs, live broadcasts, and kinetic sculptures, British artist Darren Almond explores changing conceptions of time and space as experienced by people in today’s technological age. Delving into both personal and historical memory, Almond often inverts and collapses the normal divisions between space and time, making us question our ability to demarcate them into measurable entities.

SITE Santa Fe will present four video works by Almond, including his train trilogy and his poignant multi-screen installation If I Had You (2003), for which he was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2005. Attempting to capture the memories of his grandmother on film, Almond uses both video and sound to conjure the incessant and inevitable passage of time. SITE will also present the U.S. premiere of Almond’s three-channel train video, In the Between (2006), which he recently shot in Tibet.

Darren Almond has established an internationally recognized career with exhibitions and works throughout the world. Appearing in several biennials, such as the Busan Biennale (2004), the Venice Biennale (2003), and the Berlin Biennial (2001), Almond has also shown in galleries from New York’s Matthew Marks to London’s White Cube to Tel-Aviv’s Sommer Contemporary Art. Museum exhibitions include the Renaissance Society in Chicago as well as Tate Britain and Kunsthaus Zurich.

Almond’s work has been acquired by the UBS Art Collection, T-B A21, the Kersliya Museum of Contemporary Art in Israel and the Chisenhale Gallery in London. Almond has been featured in numerous art catalogues and publications, including several monographs that explore his work.

Born in 1971 in Wigan, England, Almond graduated from the Winchester School of Art in 1993. He lives and works in London.
