a forgotten kingdom, remembered

Nelson, Mike [Artist] (2023) a forgotten kingdom, remembered. .


Mike Nelson, known for his intricately layered constructions, here returns his installations to their narrative foundations. a forgotten kingdom, remembered follows his far-reaching survey Extinction Beckons at the Hayward Gallery earlier this year, developing upon and beyond its explanatory work descriptions with a collection of new texts by the artist that echo the bodily impacts of his large-scale work. The writings on view become expansive by means of the realms they create within a viewer, with each piece tracing the lineage of a particular sculpture by the artist, implanting itself in memory much like its antecedent. Together they map his practice and the approaches that crucially shape it, communicating the deeply engrained, albeit unseen underpinnings of significant projects, lending voice with devices previously unexplored.
