Victoria Miro is delighted to present a solo exhibition by Doug Aitken at the Mayfair gallery. This specific constellation of five key works has been conceived for the gallery by the artist, and deals with contemporary ideas of time through the use of sound, touch, light and reflectivity; with each work existing in a zone between abstraction and representation. At the core of the exhibition is Eyes closed, wide awake (Sonic Fountain II), 2014, a free-standing sonic sculpture which combines water and sound to create an optical and auditory experience.

This summer marks a significant moment in the American artist's career, with two important European institutions celebrating his work: Station to Station opens at London's Barbican on 27 June, and a major survey exhibition opens at the Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt on 9 July.
