9 The Time Needs Changing
33 Planktons in the Sea: A few Questions Regarding the Qualities of Time
Raqs Media Collective
Presenting an alternative to conventional time, the exhibition created a thought-scape around the idea of time through drawing, photography, video, installation and new media works by Cao Fei, Nilbar Güreş and Raqs Media Collective from China, Turkey and India. The three artists released the shackles of time and suggest alternative and parallel paths, responding to time in their own ways.
The exhibition catalogue includes essays by the curator Alistair Hicks and Raqs Media Collective. In his essay where he talks about the works in the exhibition in detail, Hicks questions our geo-politically controlled notions of time and offers a fresh perspective to linear time, which is currently strictly enforced by the power structures under which we live. Raqs Media Collective raises questions about how do we use, share and exchange time that is not ours, and how can we talk about reciprocity in relation to something that we cannot own.
