Time, distance, size, speed. From earliest times people have tried to come to terms with the ‘real world’ – to locate themselves in time and space – by measuring. Through painting, photography, video and installation this exhibition takes an unusual variety of art from the last thirty years which has measurement as its basis.

Among the artists exhibiting – Euan Uglow’s Root Five Nude measures the geometry of a life model in a meticulously organised setting. In a specially commissioned ‘impingement’ Gary Woodley explores the architectural spaces of the gallery at Kettle’s Yard. Richard Long records and evokes the actual experience of mapped and pre-measured walks in the natural landscape. By contrast, Lizzie Hughes’ sound piece is emphatically urban – relentlessly ascending as she telephones each consecutive floor of the Empire State Building – while Mona Hatoum’s video, Measures of Distance, charts the dislocation of exile and separation.
