Viewing Room | Fluid Time

From August 8, 2022 to September 5, 2022, Independent & Image Art Space is glad to present a group exhibition “Fluid Time”.

Armen Avanessian, an Austrian philosopher, says that “The basic thesis of the post-contemporary is that time is changing. We are not just living in a new time or accelerated time, but time itself — the direction of time — has changed. We no longer have a linear time, in the sense of the past being followed by the present and then the future. It’s rather the other way around: the future happens before the present, time arrives from the future.”

In this new era, time is fluid, and there is no obvious progression from a before, to a during and an after in historical terms. The fluidity of time indicates the blurring of boundaries, escaping categorizations, and not being concretely defined. In such a time how does an artist imagine the future? How to view histories? How to create unexpected narratives and connections to tell untold stories? How to even use time as an artistic medium to interpret the life we experience?

Artists: B. Quinn, Cécile Lobert, Chris Ohlson, Christy Love, Claudia Habringer, digger, JBeaumont, Liu Xiaoyu, Nero Cosmos, Sarah Kathryn Ahearn, Tiziana Rasile, Tom Rosenthal, Yuho
