This exhibition gets its title from the 1997 Robert Breer film of the same name, which takes place in both individual and universal time.
“Time Flies” touches on a dynamic and unique present where man is at the center of a changing world.
The exhibition brings together works that focus on a fleeting and fragile moment, and yet are also part of the ongoing flux and a more universal process.
Apart from their formal and generational differences, the artists here share a refusal of reality by creating autonomous systems where humor and luck play key roles (Yann Sérandour and François Morellet, Fischli and Weiss).
“Time Flies” tests our awareness and perceptions with the use of visions, similar to illusionism (Ceal Floyer),
or through mathematic formulas that are turned into a game (Attila Csörgö).
And finally, “Time Flies” brings man back to his own temporality, either with instantaneous experience or propelling
him into the future (Robert Breer).
