The Infinite Wheel of Time: multidisciplinary exhibition by Young Blood Initiative

About

Opening: “The Infinite Wheel of Time” London. The theme this time explores the eternal return of existence, juxtaposing a cyclic view of time with our linear perception of it. If we think of the past not only as what has already happened but also as what is yet to come, how can we address our excessive industrial production, the damage that we do to nature and even our daily decisions. Can a different approach to time help us to better understand our experience in the world and open up the options available for us to act?

With the private view, we will kick off 5 days of exhibition, alongside the live art evening and the lectures event. Stay tuned!

-----------------------------------------------------------

In this exhibition programme, we are exploring time as more than a successive and chronological line and think about it as an infinity cycle more akin to the processes of nature. We want to think of our time as both parallel and cyclical, presenting the future as the eternal return of difference, this means we do not expect the past to come back in the same way! Unlike the unidirectional ‘timeline’, the wheel of time of our title affirms two
directions at once, as the past curves away and comes around again, re-presenting the same opportunities, risks and dangers. This means that the future is a process of reassembling, i.e. it cuts, connects, patches up and (re)orders from fragments of past and presents events to generate new sequences that will become what is yet-to-come.

How can we understand our current political situation by thinking of the re-assembled return of past events and ideas? What can we learn by treating the past as an indicator of what will happen? Is it possible to live in a way that adapts and responds to both linear and cyclic time? Is it Nietsche’s advice of living as if we have to live the same moment again, more urgent than ever? Can radical ways of thinking time help us to approach our current problems?
