The Immeasurable and World's End focuses on the process of memory as a subjective experience of time, where collective memory is conceived as a sociocultural process of producing time in society. The ghostly temporality of ongoing entanglement of “what was/ is/ to-come”, as a dynamism of forces in which all things are constantly diffracting, influencing and working inseparably. It assembles mechanisms of spacetimemattering configurings, a superposition of multiple places and times by taking account of all possible histories.
The exhibition looks into the oeuvres of 11 individual artists, 1 duo and 2 collectives from Australia, India, Lithuania, South Korea and Thailand. Each body of work defines a string of moments, whilst being situated in a shared space, the exhibition demonstrates the coexistence of different time layers in the same moment, the multidirectional temporal movements between past, present and future.
