To celebrate Mike Nelson: Extinction Beckons exhibition at the Hayward Gallery; the artist has created an exclusive limited-edition print.
Mike Nelson’s photograph MAGAZIN (Büyük Valide Han) (2003/2023) depicts the eerie photographic darkroom, infused with red light, that he created as part of his installation for the Istanbul Biennial in 2003.
Throughout his career, Nelson has made acutely observed photographic studies of his atmospheric installations that conjure arrestingly life-like fictional places and enigmatic narratives. Though he has never exhibited his photographs, they comprise a kind of shadow practice within his larger activity as an artist.
Produced as a C-print in keeping with its subject, this limited edition presents a striking and poetic meditation on memory, decay and our irrepressible yet futile desire to freeze the passing of time.
