Roman Signer: Slow Movement

4 March 2015 - 31 May 2015
The Curve


Internationally renowned for sculptural installations and video works, Swiss artist Roman Signer presents Slow Movement, a new installation for the Curve using the kayak, a longstanding symbol and form in his work for three decades. Specifically made for this show, a kayak navigates the 90-metre long gallery as if moving through a canal.
The exhibition extends out to the foyer and lakeside, with two other kayaks installed across the centre in unexpected ways, reflecting Signer’s playful and surreal approach to his subject.

Slow Movement
also includes a selection of earlier films featuring the kayak to explore the multiple facets of his innovative practice through his ongoing interest in this object.

The exhibition is presented in association with Dundee Contemporary Arts.

Coinciding with the exhibition, The Mill Co. Project & Create are hosting an installation by art critic Rachel Withers based on the contents of Signer’s library. Rachel Withers: Roman Signer's Library of Marvels (Fast Version) is on show at the Rose Lipman Building from 5 March to 4 April 2015. For more information, please visit
