Portikus presents the work of late British conceptual artist John Latham (1921–2006) and a new work by artist and researcher Neal White. By facilitating a dialogue between these two practices, the show decodes Latham’s expansive and hugely complex oeuvre and the conceptual legacy of art in relation to the ‘event’ as a structural entity.
John Latham’s engagement with the phenomenological and temporal is represented here in the critical work God is Great (#4), 2005. The work consists of a field of shattered glass spread with copies of the Bible, Koran and Talmud across the gallery floor.
