In a period in which our relationship with time has irrevocably changed, Living in Time makes visible the power of transforming small actions and repetitions into rituals. Responding to the architecture of the former church, Arantxa Araujo, in collaboration with LUM Arte y Medios y Vicios Ocultos, Alejandro Chellet, Miao Jiaxin, and Verónica Peña, consider how place grounds experience and how our environments mediate our connection with ourselves and others. The title refers to the text We are opposite like that (Subcontinentment books: 2020) by the writer and artist Himali Singh Soin. The poem begins, “we live in time, even as we experience the world in duration,” and continues to trouble the “invisible tension between objective reality and the subjectivity of perception.” While this extended moment of crisis brings new anxieties, it also presents an opportunity to unbound ourselves from a linear relationship with time and imagine new forms of communication.
