Our latest exhibition, Timecode, marks the beginning of the our 10th anniversary year. Each artist in the exhibition has an obsession with marking time but have very different ways of expressing this — live web streams, wallpaper, lumps of coal, lava medallions, digital code alongside more traditional, yet still idiosyncratic and highly personal approaches — graphite, watercolour and oil paint. Timecode brings together internationally revered artists (Douglas Gordon, On Kawara), alongside artists at an earlier stage in their career (Graham Dolphin, Ilana Halperin).The works all express the passing of time in very different ways. From Christian Stock's blocks of paint, painstakingly built up over the course of several months to Thomson & Craighead's new media work which shows webcam views from all the world's timezones and transmits them live in to the gallery projected on the wall. The exhibition is accompanied by a selection of talks and events and a specially selected film programme for the DCA cinema including Mike Figgis's groundbreaking Timecode and a double bill of Chris Marker's seminal La Jetee and Sans Soleil. Special limited edition prints, made at DCA, by Thomson & Craighead and Graham Dolphin, have been commissioned to coincide with the exhibition and will be on display in DCA's Print Space.
