Darren Almond (English, born 1971)
Darren Almond’s art concerns time and journeys. This interest dates back to his youth, when he was a train-spotter and travelled widely throughout Britain by train. Amongst Almond’s early work is a series of nameplates in cast aluminium, made in imitation of the plaques on British 125 inter-city trains, as well as an enormous digital clock in which the numbers flip over with a heavy click. Other work has concerned the bus stop at Auschwitz and the personal memories of his grandmother. Almond was born in Wigan and studied at Winchester School of Art. He works in a variety of media, including installation, film, photography, sculpture and print. In 2005 he was nominated for the Turner Prize.
