On average exhibition visitors take just eleven seconds to view a work of art. That’s just three breaths of air or roughly the time it takes to read these two sentences. How then can works of art with varying durations be exhibited and, in spite of our short attention spans, still be experienced as the artists intended?
In this exhibition, fourteen artists from nine countries deal with the themes of timing and duration within a range of media such as video, photography, installation, sound and performance. Many of the works are process-based and change over the course of the exhibition, which in itself can be seen as a two-week process. The exhibition encourages us to consciously observe our own behaviour as visitors. To wait, observe and engage with the works and the time they require – or to give partial attention at the risk of missing a key moment.
