INFO

  • I cannot reconcile myself with the idea of time. I cannot control it, slow it down or speed it up – and yet, I try. My interest in duration and consciousness stems from a failure to regain lost and unredeemable time and my process of interacting with images takes on diverse forms in an attempt to trap the uncontainable. The function of my work should not be to attempt to represent my preoccupations but to better produce the feeling that there is something unpresentable. This is reflected in various works, not only with the insatiable desire to capture and contain time, but also by creating impossible scenes, re-appropriating cinema or presenting found objects as readymades divested of their original intention to create ambiguity and self-referential failures to communicate.

TIME REMAPPED, 2014










TIME REMAPPED
2014
190 x 130 cm
Digital c-type prints, framed Edition 10 + 2AP

Time Remapped reconsiders five second slices of (cult) movie time, laying them in sequence to be examined and within each frame is time, contained, laid out: time cheated. The images take on the visual semblance of a photographer’s light table, where rolls of slide film are immaculately splayed for examination, and where time takes on a spatial dimension which could be read like a text, left to right, top to bottom. The film’s audio track relayed on headphones further distances the viewer from the cinematic experiences through creating a tension between the actual time of the clip and the heightening sensation of time passing as one tries to reconcile the two realities of time through the abridgement of the film’s image and the audio track running in real time.
