Isaac Julien CBE is one of Britain’s most influential and critically acclaimed artists working today, who is known for pioneering multi-screen installations. Informed by his film background, Julien’s gallery installations form fractured narratives that reflect critical thinking about race, globalisation, and representation.

MIDNIGHT SUN (PLAYTIME), 2013 is a powerful photograph from the iconic series PLAYTIME - a seven-screen film installation about the concept of capital and the impact of the global financial crisis. Filmed within a range of settings – sharp-edged offices in London and Dubai, a crumbling modern fantasy home between mountains and sea in Iceland – adds to the sense of dislocation of the modern world.
