White Cube is pleased to present an exhibition of new painting and sculpture by Darren Almond. Focusing on the idea of time and how it is articulated through the language of numbers, attention is drawn to the way time can frame, structure and inform our understanding of the world.
While time is a theoretical abstraction it is also a concrete reality within human culture, one that is always rooted in relativity. Almond’s new series of paintings respond to this notion and to the idea that numbers are the only ‘true common language.’ The basis of most organizing systems, numbers are a primary determinant of human experience. Used to visualize the invisible, they not only quantify time, but enable scaling and mapping, are the language of economics, the tools of computer coding and the way to describe galactic schema too large for words alone.
