Layers of Time continues on from the previous group show Dreamscapes by West End artists. As time is defined by lockdowns and feelings of confusion, the gardens we hastily planted in March have now grown.
Our existential reflections melted into a sludge of takeaway boxes and Netflix binge, acedia settled in, slowly we started to resemble the desert fathers and Saint Anthony, calling to be made whole again while some of us shed tears and wished for a cure. Here and there, euphoria sprang at the sound of freedom approaching (Cally Lotz ‘Hope’), glimpses of gratitude on how sweet slowing down is gazing for hours through branches in (Sarina Lirosi’s Cupio)…In the words of Virginia Woolf, ”the revelation never came. Instead, there were little daily miracles, illuminations, matches struck unexpectedly in the dark”.
Layers of Time is a collection of the latest artworks created in lockdown accompanied by reflections on how the pandemic has affected these artists’ notion of time.
