> DESCRIPTION

Krowswork is pleased to present three solo installations by Margo Majewska, Ilene Segalove, and Mary Hull Webster, which each complicate the presentiments of linear video by looping back and through personal histories and visual data, marking memory, time’s passage, and the integration of self-knowledge as quantum, simultaneous experiences out of which a new hybrid consciousness is born.

These artists’ projects are united by their insistent reference of extra-temporal modes of being made possible through video, but their purpose is not to propose an immortality through digital means. They suggest instead that time was never lost and understand impermanence as the ultimate abstraction. In the videos each artist overlays something of her present on her digitally remembered or simulated self; in that moment time collapses. And when this is done (is able to be done), what really is past? Each installation, to some degree, provides a proof of a paradox worthy of a Buddhist koan: perhaps the self always and never was.
