The Opposite of Time 

Andy Holden performed a live narration of the film work The Opposite of Time (2017)during the exhibition launch event. Andy voiced the animated crow guiding us through the social history of egg collecting, illegal in Great Britain since 1954. It’s a story of fixation and tenacity, with ‘eggers’ going to astonishing lengths to find their treasure.

The film was first shown in Natural Selection, an Artangel project installed at the former Cuming Museum on Walworth Road, Southwark, London in 2017.


The Opposite of Time was commissioned by Artangel, Bristol Museum & Art Gallery, Leeds Art Gallery and Towner Art Gallery, with the support of the National Lottery through Arts Council England, Spike Island and Bristol Green Capital 2015, the Henry Moore Foundation and Artangel’s Guardian Angels.
