Over the past two decades Anri Sala has created an exceptional body of films and installations in which sound, music and the projected image come together to express themes of lived and historic time. This exhibition presents major installations, film works and drawings by Sala from the past five years. The title Le Temps coudé, borrows from the French phrase ‘faire un coude’ and refers to warps or bends in our experience of what we see, hear and know.

The focus on experience is also found in the way Sala orchestrates the presentation of his works. Each exhibition is unique in configuration and is designed, to quote the artist, as a ‘continuum of presences and flows’, a ‘site of conjunctions and interrelations,’ in which the physical presence of the viewer is an active component.
