Exhibition preview

AN EXHIBITION entitled simply Time will be on display at the WW Gallery from May 28 to July 4, 2010.

Time is by definition the measure used to sequence events. In this exhibition we see the artist as philosopher, scientist, historian and archaeologist. The artist marks, traces, passes, commemorates, measures, captures or defies time in one way or another, with works that confront and mediate life experiences, cycles and rites of passage.

Narratives are used to examine and analyse sequences of events as a way of providing perspective on the problems of the present. For individuals, time holds economic value and reminds us of our own fragility and mortality and as it flows, time is at once the past, the present and the future.

The 17 time-keepers and chroniclers in this exhibition explore the theme through sculpture, painting, video, photography, print, drawing, installation and time-based performance.

The participating artists are Anthea Henderson, Boa Swindler, Caroline Walker, Chantal Powell, Chiara Williams, Flora Parrott, H. Williams, Ingrid Berthon-Moine, Jarik Jongman, Jayne Wilton, Liane Lang, Liesel Bock, Lorraine Clarke, Momoko Suzuki, Phil Illingworth, Rob Miller and Stephanie Wehowski.

The exhibition curators are Debra Wilson and Chiara Williams.

Times: Saturday and Sunday from 12 noon to 6pm and by appointment.

Part of Time Out First Thursdays June 3 and July 1 (6 to 9pm).
