The intimate consciousness of time
The intimate consciousness of timebrings together six artists whose work is characterized by temporality and who use the notion of time either as an integral part of their creative process or as a perception mechanism.
In the gallery window, Athina Ioannou’s Large Hanging Paintingslink those two paths in a subtle and complex way. In her minimal compositions, the artist soaks colored fabric in linseed oil, without adding any pigment, and the oil slowly penetrates and saturates the textiles. She thus initiates a progressive transfiguration of her chosen materials, which affects their texture, opacity, colors and smell. The notion of duration is present at the inception of her process, when the main transformation occurs, but the chemical dialogue between fabric and linseed oil will also continue through the years, slowly and almost imperceptibly.
