Meanwhile. (video) installation

 

"The moment does not represent, it only is a reminder that 'there is' something even before that which has any significations (…) it has nothing to communicate, it shines in its pure presence... "

From 'The Scent of Time' by  Byung-Chul Han 

'Meanwhile' is a (video) installation for floating objects where Meantime – time with no significant meaning to itself, seen barely as a connecting tissue between more defined times and events, is the main focus. Working with movement as her main material, with 'Meanwhile' Kinga wants to access and physicalise the hovering time which flows independently to our clocks time so to speak, calmly and nonchalantly.

 

Working with sensitive to motion, transparent objects the work attempts to illuminate the invisible to human eye air currents. The objects' main aim is to expose continuous motions which at all time present around us, are so rarely made visible and are therefore so often overlooked.  

With ‘Meanwhile’ Kinga wonders whether exposure of such motions, their sensitivities and time they exist in, could influence our perception of time and space - whether it could amplify our experience of it.

"How to bring focus to the ‘in between’ zones without turning them into a significant event?"

is similarly to Kinga's previous project 'Grey', the main questions behind the work. 

This work is being created in a very close collaboration with Rosemarie Allaert.
