Katie Paterson: In Another Time

“The word ‘poetic’ is a treacherous one to apply to any artist, but Paterson’s is a poetry of knowledge and mystery, cosmicomically rendered.” Brian Dillon, The Guardian, 6 April 2012

From transmitting Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata to the moon and back, to providing a live phone line to a melting glacier, much of Katie Paterson’s work uses everyday technologies – from doorbells to record players – to make a connection between humanity and vast, intangible natural phenomena. Strangely intimate and inherently romantic, her work provides a poetic examination of the origins of time and space which is both understated and monumental.

Curated by Filipa Oliveira and Aldo Rinaldi, Katie Paterson: In Another Time is the largest, most comprehensive exhibition of the artist’s work in the UK to date. Co-produced by the Mead Gallery with Fundacao Leal Rios, Lisbon; La Casa Encendida, Madrid and Yorkshire Sculpture Park, the exhibition will be adapted at each gallery to present individual, nuanced interpretations of Paterson’s practice.

Works presented at the Mead Gallery include letters of condolence for the death of stars, an archive of darkness from throughout the universe, and light bulbs specially created to simulate moonlight.

If you are planning to visit the exhibition with a school group, Teachers’ Notes are available to help you plan your visit and provide ideas for follow up activities. These can be downloaded by clicking on the icon to the right of the page.
