“What is the meaning of art, architecture, music, painting or poetry if not the anticipation of a suspended, wonder-struck moment, a miraculous moment?” (Georges Bataille)

Anticipation Time defines the time between the end of an object’s movement and its human perception. This temporal gap, which precedes the “response time,” is filled with sensory experience and awareness that anticipate movement, behavior and interpretation. This exhibition examines the concrete biological, physical, psychological and social aspects of “anticipation time” – as well as the conceptual and poetic potential of the terms – “time” and “anticipation.”

The works included in the exhibition are displayed in a museum space, whose rules and conventions the viewer is required to respect. Yet these very same rules and conventions are ones that the artist is expected to repeatedly break or ignore – transgressing limits and disrupting the existing order. The museum space is one of detachment, withdrawal, contrivance and suspension. As such, it enables one to pay attention to duration as a subjective, fluid and changing concept, which is at times defined precisely by what extends beyond it.
