Darren Almond's work takes as its subject matter the recurring themes of time, memory, human labour and exploitation in various geographical parts of the world.
Almond is an avid traveller and since the beginning of his career in the mid 1990s he has experimented with films, video-installations and photography in remote regions. He has also made kinetic sculptures, the best-known of which are made with digital clock mechanisms.
In his solo exhibition at Parasol unit Almond will show two films, shot separately in China and Indonesia; a series of photographs taken in Norilsk and Monchegorsk, Siberia; and a time-based wall sculpture.
