“This body of work was made while traveling overseas, time felt like it was condensing, becoming arbitrary, barely a function to signal the difference between night and day, I had a feeling of being displaced, not knowing languages, unfamiliar locations, people. Time was slowing down, every day felt like the last and simultaneously the first. I would spend the mornings in various studio locations, with most afternoons spent exploring, eating, swimming, walking and then back to the studio at night – the same again the next day. This new body of work attempts to recreate that feeling of isolation, stillness and longing.” – Laith McGregor.


Laith McGregor, Time Will Tell, until December 13, 2018, Michael Reid Berlin
