Movement is at the centre of this exhibition: the movement of our own bodies dramatically framed by Tom├ís Saraceno’s majestic webbed spheres, or reflected in the sublime geometry of Timo Nasseri’s refracted universe. We are invited to move in Uche Okpa-Ironha’s dynamic studies of light and shadow, to dance to Michael Jackson in the work of Candice Breitz, and be mesmerised by Julian Opie’s passing parade of humanity. These works invite a multi-layered perspective of the world, asking us to embrace detailed insights into the lives of others, just as we enjoy passing through abstracted spaces modelling cosmos and community.
