A Time Machine Again

A Time Machine Again

‘Again, A Time Machine, 2011–12’ was a touring exhibition in seven parts, at Eastside Projects, Birmingham; Motto, Berlin; The Showroom, London; Spike Island, Bristol; White Columns, New York; and SPACE, London, that also produced a publication artists work, and writing, ‘Again, A Time Machine: from distribution to archive’, (2012).

As a tour, Again, A Time Machine, reinvented itself as work moved from venue to venue. Based on new commissions and archival presentations, it generated ephemera, performance and printed material, in response to a theme that plays with and inverts notions of time, archive, distribution and received pasts and perfect futures.
