Time – WW Gallery
WW Gallery is a not-for-profit artists’ run project space in a converted Victorian terraced house in Hackney, East London. I have blogged a number of times about the exciting exhibitions and artists they are showcasing and so was really chuffed to be asked to submit the piece Someone To Watch Over You to their upcoming exhibition, Time.
Here is some info about the show which will be taking place towards the end of May:
Dates: 28 May – 4 July 2010
Private View: Fri 28 May 6-9pm
Time Out First Thursdays: 3rd June & 1st July 6-9pm
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.
