Time is a concept. We measure minutes, days, years according to a reference system that orders our lives, work, and social structures, and that acts as a tool of communication and orientation. By complying to a linear time structure, we look back at where we come from and calculate where we go. Gilles Deleuze once wrote: “Nothing real is produced by time. It is habit that produces: as a system, habit produces the past as rule for the future.”

Hence, the notion of time is directly linked with the question of societal structures and behaviours. We might all learn to read time in the same way, but the experience of time is on the other hand a rather subjective matter.

In ancient Greece, there were two words for differentiating these concepts of time: Kronos and Kairos. Kronos stands for the chronological sequence, the quantitative and representative dimension of a system ruled by the dead hand of the past, whereas Kairos embodies the numinous moments of time, giving birth to the sensitive, to novelty, creativity and serendipity.

With the exhibition SEEMINGLY INCURABLE SENSATION OF TEMPORAL AMBIGUITY at KRONE COURONNE, this duality between the felt and the calculated, the sensorial and the quantified is explored, pondering the questions: How do we feel and experience the passing of time? Does the notion of an ordered time (second by second) contribute to a better balanced society? Has the tool of communication become a tool of manipulation? What would happen if we freed ourselves from the concept of time?
