TIME does not stand still
Berlin, Tel Aviv | 2013
Speech at the opening of Shoshanah' Ciechanowski at Galerie Tammen, Berlin, 05.04.2013 by Christoph Tannert's :The present day world is characterized by a mixture of frustration and excitement. Everything is supposed to be growing, becoming faster, to always be available. TIME for the essentials evaporates in the steam of an overheated, late capitalism that has lost sight of both humanity and morality.
An exhibition like the one we can see here today comes at the right TIME. Calm is possible if we look to the existential. The fundamental sculptural gesture of this exhibition is an invitation to do so.
