The British Council presents Winter, by Julian Opie.
The exhibition centres on a new acquisition of works from the series Winter. (2012), a sequence of seventy-five prints that represent a circular walk taken by the artist through the French countryside on a harsh but beautiful day. The prints absorb an eclectic range of influences, from 17th-century Dutch landscape painting to Street View on Google Maps, and are at the forefront of Opie’s continued investigation into the experience of landscape. The installation of these works creates a surrounding panorama that combines the rural landscape with slick architectural surfaces immersing the viewer in the purified essence of his experience.
The exhibition will tour India between May 2015 to August 2016.
