Tim Shore: Derby Mean Time - an exhibition about time, space, memory and Derby.






Derby Mean Time – an exhibition by artist Tim Shore, opens at Pickford’s House, Derby Museums, this Saturday, 14 September. Tim will be in the gallery between 2pm and 4pm, so if you’re in town, please drop by to see the exhibition, say hello, and have a cup of tea.

Derby Mean Time is an exhibition about time, space, memory and Derby. And how things drift in and out of alignment, and what happens when places are lost and things are forgotten.

It explores the legacy of John Flamsteed (1646-1719), 
the first Astronomer Royal. He lived at 22 Queen Street, Derby, from where he made astronomical readings using a zero degree line of longitude – a prime meridian – that placed Derby at the centre of space and time. The exhibition includes animation, 
paper sculpture, photography, and artist’s books, which are shown alongside Flamsteed’s Atlas Coelestis and Historia Coelestis Britannica.
