“Time is the substance I am made of. Time is a river which sweeps me along, but I am the river. It is a tiger which destroys me but I am the tiger. It is a fire which consumes me but I am the fire.
Jorge Luis Borges, Labyrinths; Selected stories and other writings”
Time is related to death, the melancholy of the past and the uncertainty of the future. It is an unrestrained feeling that some artists, writers and scientists like Jorge Luis Borges, T. S. Eliot, Salvador Dali, David Hume, Albert Einstein or Stephen Hawking have been trying to translate into various areas through centuries using different resources.
Time needs to be shown as immaterial, infinite, open and cannot be static. It is intrinsically deep in our mind has a real concept but it has limitations because our perceptions are affecting the reality which is around us.
This installation collaboration between five artists trying to explore the human perception, which is linked to an object that is associated to time and its anxiety.
Does artwork need the space for its meaning or can the artwork survive on its own without the rigid position of space?
The interaction of both concepts has a similarity between the object and the idea. Space and time. Memories and Object.”
