The Meaning of Time (2009)

Curated by: Mateja Rot
Production: SCCA-Ljubljana 2009
Duration: 20′ 37”

A selection of three works by Slovenian women artists that re-examine and contemplate the issue of movement in time and the idea of time passing that is reflected in dreams as well as in everyday realities. Time is interlacing with a moving female figure, her body and spirit. Time is moving fast and sometimes slowly while we carry on living our existences, facing choices and making decisions. We are floating in an endless journey, making up our minds in bridging the past and the future, youth and maturity, courage and fear of being alive. Subsequently, the viewers are carried into more abstract mood which constantly transforms, inviting us to experience the passing of time, dissolution of figure(s) and metamorphosis of the image. Finally, the image settles spontaneously in the water. And inside the water there is life.
