The Invisible Line Gallery is proud to host Time is Love.7, a night of films and performance curated by Kisito Assangni.
Time is Love is a video project gathering several artists and filmmakers, and has traveled to major cities in the world from New York to Tehran, Paris, and now London. Preoccupied with love, the project represents love stripped from its traditional cliches and timeless idealism. “Each of the artists leads an interdisciplinary practice bringing a questioning and a criticism on a system of relation to others which appears to us as being dying,” Assangni explains.
Taking these ambivalent feelings as a starting point, the artists develop their own language according to their sensibility and history. The selected videos deal with prevented communications, disturbed feelings, globalisation, memory and spirituality. As a result, each video inspires the viewer to question the normative undertandings of relationships in the occidental world.
