TIME is Love.7 @ Torrance Art Museum, California

BY boko annabelle | 27-Jul-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. #timeisloveshow @torranceArt #TorranceArtMuseum @timeisloveshow

With:

Amina Zoubir, Arnaud Brihay, Belle Shafir, Carlo Giuseppe Zuozo, Eva Olsson, Evelin Stermitz, Irina Gabiani, Justyna Scheuring, Laura Focarazzo, Marie-Paule Bilger, Marina Fomenko, Margarida Paiva, Nina Lassila, Rahman Hak-Hagir, Robert Croma, Said Rais, Saul Levine, Sheri Wills, Simone Stoll, S/N Coalition, Sylvia Toy St-Louis, William Esdale.

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.
