> DESCRIPTION

Time, he's waiting in the wings

He speaks of senseless things

His script is you and me, boy.

David Bowie

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.
