SMART Project Space is pleased to announce the fi rst solo exhibition in the Netherlands by Giorgio Andreotta Calò (born in V enice\, Italy\, and lives and works in Amsterdam\, The Netherlands). Andreo tta Calò presents an immersive audiovisual installation realized in collabo ration with Emanuele Wiltsch Barberio which captures the dynamic nature of time. 

Open dai ly from sunrise to sunset\, the exhibition and site specific installation < em>08.09.2012 - 21.10.2012 is a meditation on temporality and a reflec tion on cinematic style and convention. Time is one of the most fundamental yet ineffable aspects of human experience\, as though instead of seeing th e world as a series of stills\, we are watching it in moving pictures.  

\n

Using the principle of the stenoscopia\, Giorgio Andreotta Calò has inserted an optical lens in the outer wall of each gallery space t o project the sky and surrounding environment on the floors\, intermingling outside space and inside time. In addition to this visual carpet\, the tem porality of sound is interwoven. The sonic dimension created by Emanuele Wi ltsch Barberio is based around the idea of conveying the sound produced by the clock located inside the tower of the SMART Project Space\, in overlapp ing patterns\, emphasizing and amplifying its sound shades through space in real time.

\n

An organic and ever evolving audiovisual land scape unfolds with its natural variations and repetitions\, in which standa rdized time stretches out to a dimension in which the distorting perspectiv es of past and future are forgotten.

08.09.2012 - 21. 10.2012 pursues how until the industrial revolution most work\, not on ly agricultural but artisanal and even clerical\, was governed by the avail ability of natural light and by the annual rhythm of the seasons. Time\, as a result\, was elastic: working days were longer or shorter through the co urse of the year\, and the seasons imposed periods of labour and others of comparative idleness. It was more important to know it was an hour before s unset than that it was any particular number on the sundial or the clock. B ut as artificial lighting allowed working hours to be standardised and the efficient operation of large-scale manufacturing required such regularisati on\, we came to be ruled by the inelastic time of the clock.
