'Flatford @ Fullmoon' shows Willy Lott's cottage in Flatford, Suffolk, immortalised in John Constable's paintings, including 'The Hay Wain' (National Gallery, London). Darren Almond's contemporary interpretation of Constable's work was created by photographing the same scene during a full moon using a long exposure. The technique allowed him to present a scene undetectable by the human eye: only the camera lens can expose such a dream-like quality of illumination captured at night.
Darren Almond lives and works today in London. In 1993 he graduated from Winchester School of Art, and since then he has achieved a notable reputation from solo and group exhibitions in London, Vienna, Berlin, Amsterdam, New York, and Tokyo. In 2000 a major solo exhibition of his work was held in the Kunsthalle, Zurich, in collaboration with the Matthew Marks Gallery of New York. In 2005 he was nominated for the Turner Prize, and in the same year he produced set-designs for the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, London. His work is in numerous public collections including the Tate, London, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York and the Art Institute of Chicago.
