DESCRIPTION

Imagine Being Here Now

The 6th Momentum Biennial is predicated upon a conviction that the complexities of orientating the world depend on factors of memory and imagination that inevitably transpire within time and space. Indeed, we tend to emphasize the latter when considering human experience, but for each individual time and space expands back and forth, up and down and even sideways (to whatever elements each person takes into consideration at any given moment). The inherent present of each individual not only extends to momentary impressions but to his or her past as well as their expectations of the future, owing to the fact that we have the ability to imagine being somewhere else entirely, in any other place at any other time. The epigram guiding the exhibition, Imagine Being Here Now, was originally conceived by Lucy R. Lippard as a lecture title offered for advance publication when unclear of what to speak about. However, the paradoxical phrase also presented an advantageous position by alluding to the question ‘why would we have to imagine a place if we are right here now?’ and moreover, perhaps most importantly, initiated a discussion about the significance of time and place in art and exhibition-making.
