An installation of photographs, sound and writing, invites you to another stance at time and space, one which is elastic, elongating and surmountable.
SPACETIME, an exhibition of photography, writing and voice recording is installed, from the 26th of July to the 23rd of August at Eklisia, the late byzantine church overlooking the bay of Gumusluk, (Myndos) Bodrum. The photographs examine our notions and perception of time and space, and how our situation in relation to these notions of “time” and “space” (our rhythmic pace, fast, slow, moderate, with a destination, without, with a limit, going somewhere, returning) affects our perception of our circumstances. A single moment can turn into infinity, whilst a journey of days too is boiled down to a single memory or a photographic moment.
Utilizing a technique of aleatory exposure on 35mm film with a hand held Nikon FM2 camera whilst taking photographs of the local terrain and sea, she plays with creating a visual language beyond Euclidian notions of time and space. This process also explores the more psychological aspect of how space begins to enlarge, or densify once outside the urban landscape. How in a state of heightened awareness and meditation, one may experience a feeling of awe, integration, elongation, elasticity, hallucination, surreality upon entry to the spatial/temporal dynamics of the countryside after the regulated and rational proportions of the city.
Where time and space meet upon a single continuum, clouds augur visions of the future and the sea is the universe.
The photographs are accompanied by an installation of texts and recordings, snippets of “thoughts out loud” – impressions, inner, accompanying
voices, arranged non linearly, as the photographs, overlapping, relaying, repeating, as thoughts on a subject repeat whilst in the process of becoming.
Thus our notions of space and time are explored – as nonlinear and relative, growing as such in relation to other components or diminishing and dilating, as Euclidean notions of time and space are being replaced by new physics, where the doors are being opened for a concept of space-time, a mathematical model of viewing the world which combines space and time into a single interwoven continuum. This concept of space-time creates a single abstract universe from the previous separate dimensions of space and time.
With Thanks to Anadolu Kultur and Eklisia for their valuable support.
Spacetime opened on the 25th of July, ran through the month of August 2015 and closed on the 22 of August at Eklisia, Gumusluk.
