Curator: Katarzyna Podgórska-Glonti
Project Title: TIME AMBIGUOUS
Set design: Katarzyna Podgórska-Glonti
Time ambiguous – separating us from the past or constantly elapsing here and now remains an essential measure of perceived incompatibility. J.L. Borges in “A personal anthology” wrote: ” Ts’ui Pên believed in the infinite series of the times, in a growing and vertiginous network convergent, divergent and parallel times. This yarn of times that approach, fork, cross and do not know about each other for centuries, they cover all the possibilities. We do not exist in most of these times; in some there is you, and I am not; in others we both exist”.
The installation focuses on reflection on the ambiguity of time.
