Metabolic time / Am meitibileach is an exhibition and public programme that considers ideas around time and the preservation of collective memory. Through artworks and methods that interrupt, reroute or circle around ideas of progressive, linear time – time as imposed by the state, by colonising powers, by institutions like museums that define our civic identity – it asks if we can recuperate other possible forms of time-reckoning that have been forgotten or suppressed.
Metabolic time / Am meitibileach includes sculpture, video, works on paper, and public events that propose time ordered otherwise: through the body, through natural processes, through discourse with ancestors. The works in the exhibition and public programme imagine forms of preservation, collecting and display that speak to shared intimate experience and networks of relation, and invite experiments with different rhythms, configurations and scales of time.
Developed and curated alongside Cairo Clarke.
