On a trip to Italy in 1828, German painter Carl Blechen (1798-1840) captured his surroundings in hundreds of exquisite drawings and oil sketches. In Landscapes, British artist Darren Almond (born 1971) traces Blechen’s path by photographing the same landscapes and juxtaposing his photos with the older artist’s sketches.

In All Things Pass, London-based artist Darren Almond (born 1971) explores the passage of time, juxtaposing a six-channel video installation filmed on the steps of Chand Baori, a spectacular ninth-century well in India, with number paintings, sculptures of stacked timepieces, and photos of a strangely modernist Neolithic stone circle.

For his installation Terminus, the British artist Darren Almond relocates 14 socialist-era bus stops from the Polish town of Oswiecim to a gallery space in Berlin, activating a force field between the Auschwitz concentration camp, everyday life in Oswiecim and the way we experience historical proximity or distance. As Julian Heynen writes in his analysis of Terminus: "What we see with our own eyes of the reality of Oswiecim, the bus shelters, is only a temporary stop on a hypothetical journey to the 'real' place, the camp. In this waiting room the direction of the next step is shown, even as doubt is cast on the chances of us satisfying our desire for authenticity." Mark Godfrey (Abstraction and the Holocaust) discusses the work's genesis and context in a conversation with Almond, while Charity Scribner (Requiem for Communism) introduces her personal experiences from Poland. An extensive photographic record draws together the many aspects of this installation, summarizing them in photo essays.

This body of work began seven years ago, by chance, with a photograph the duration of whose exposure coincided with the length of a kiss...The ensuing photographs were all taken on full moon nights after darkness had fallen on landscapes I had already seen.
