13 October Friday 2017
As part of the exhibition ‘A Slice of Time’ by Evgenia Emets at By Other Means we invite you to a discussion about perception of Time. Join us on Friday 13 October to reflect and talk about how culture creates structure of Time. We will share questions and ideas, we will write and co-create a Time Sutra, an ongoing artwork.
Evgenia Emets is a poet and artist. Sound, word, poetry, drawing are the primary elements of her current practice. Through installations and performances Evgenia creates experiences, which invite the audience to explore their relationship with their body, voice and language.
Ines Bravo, Conservator
Ines Bravo has been in the arts and heritage sector for 8 years. Her career started as a plastic artist in Portugal and the core of her artistic projects was the exploration and questioning of the concept of time. A shift in her career occurred in London where she became qualified to work as a conservator of sculpture. Despite this big change in her career, the topic of time is something that still accompanies her (or one could even say that follows her) and which is occasionally reconsidered as a result of her work as a conservator.
Evgenia Emets has spent two weeks in an art residency at By Other Means, exploring notions of time through artists books, audience participation, performance and site-specific installation. During this time she dissected an antique 19th century book and posted its chapters to audience to re-assemble it in the form of answers to her questions about Time. She dug into mainstream media narrative about Time slicing down two editions of Sunday Times to identify patterns of language dominating social discourse. She impress the abstracted word Time itself, encoding meaning into image through embossing and debossing techniques.
Join our discussion on Friday, 13 for a limited Time to think, talk and listen about the force, which forms the basic fabric of our existence, which governs our life.
