Time: a familiar framework for all our lives, but a fundamentally peculiar concept.Timepiece is a major new installation that encourages us to take a fresh look at something we all take for granted.

Suspended above the Roundhouse’s epic Main Space will be a vast 8-metre faceless clock, a spectacular light sculpture that will flood the space with intricate layers of light and shadow. Responding to the building’s circular shape and 24 towering support pillars, the building itself will become the Timepiece, allowing us all to see time in a different way.

Conrad Shawcross is widely acknowledged as one of the leading artists of his generation. His sculptures explore physics and metaphysics, biology, geometry, philosophy and cosmology.

As a counterpoint to the installation, ROTOR is three live works from Siobhan Davies Dance featuring four dance artists who manipulate time in order to achieve a set of tasks.

Saturday 17 August, Performances at 12.00pm, 4.00pm and 7.00pm 

Friday 23 August, Performances at 5.00pm and 7.00pm
