Darren Almond is interested in time, place, personal history, and collective memory. He makes sculptures, films, photographs, and works on paper based on his extensive travels, which often take him to remote locations. His 2006 film In the Between, for example, which focuses on the highest train route in the world, was shot on location in China and Tibet. For his Fullmoon series he developed a unique approach to landscape photography, using the light of the full moon to create extraordinary long-exposure photographs bathed in an unusual, almost magical glow.
Darren Almond (b. 1971) was born in Wigan, United Kingdom, and lives and works in London. His work was included in the 2003 Venice Biennale, and he has had one-person exhibitions at Tate Britain in London, the Kunsthalle Zürich, Mudam Luxembourg, the Renaissance Society at the University of Chicago, K21 Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen in Düsseldorf, and SITE Santa Fe, among others.
