TIME is Love.7 [Show 6] – International video art program
TORRANCE ART MUSEUM, Torrance, CA, United States23 Aug 2014 - 18 Oct 2014
TIME is Love is a video art project gathering several artists, and has traveled to major cities in the world: New York, London, Berlin, Paris, seoul…Preoccupied with love, the project represents love stripped from its traditional clichés and timeless idealism. Each of the artists leads an interdisciplinary practice bringing a questioning and a criticism on a system of relation to others which appears to us as being dying.
Taking these ambivalent feelings as a starting point, the artists develop their own language according to their sensibility and history. The selected videos deal with prevented communications, disturbed feelings, globalisation, memory and spirituality. As a result, each video inspires the viewer to question the normative understandings of relationships in the occidental world.
