“In theory, one is aware that the earth revolves, but in practice one does not perceive it, the ground upon which one treads seems not to move, and one can live undisturbed. So it is with Time in one’s life.”*


Along the objective measures that tick away the passage of time, perception – intimately tied to personal experiences – plays often a good cent in the story. Sometimes time rushes by unnoticed, and at others, it plods along despite the ticking wristwatch. Time flows uniquely for each, but again, remains the same for everyone.


The work operates as an organic chronicle that takes note of the ongoing march of time by mirroring the timeline of the 14th edition of Art au Centre – gradually transforming itself in a columbarium for daily populated flowers that cover on their turn, parallel existences.
