time it takes 

“ What will the pace of the future be? (…), will the human being, after a short period of whizzing, return to the earth as walker? “ - Byung Chul – Han

“Time It Takes” which balances between installation and performance, is a continuation of Kinga's search for ways to capture and physicalise the ‘non-event’ time - time which not fragmented by the multiplicity of short lasting and vibrant events, continues its not fragmented flow. 

Inspired by the quote of H.Bergson: “Since our body is not a mathematical point but always a duration”, with 'Time It Takes', Kinga searches for continuity of her own body and for ways to approach it as a duration. By focusing on its physical weight Jaczewska explores different ways of grounding. Through this research she wonders if by allowing gravity to (re)enter her body, she could resist the speed of the progressive time and allow rhythms different to those of the production - oriented regime, to come up to the surface.
