Theoretical physicist Lee Somlin said, "In human perception, time means to change." Science has defined time as a linear structure of hours, minutes, and seconds equally valid for all people, without sorrow or joy. Although every "civilized person" cannot escape the control of this structure, the speed, weight, content and emotion of time are completely different for different people. After all, living in this chaotic and ever-changing world, we actively or passively deal with unpredictable changes. With them come all kinds of emotions and stories that we can't help but be addicted to. Time is like the sky, just as the sky has clouds, thunder and rain. We have sadness, joy, happiness and sorrow in time or amid unceasing change.
We constantly arrive at new situations and continue harvesting and modifying our memories in response to these changes. The difficulty of defining "memory" is enormous. We all rely heavily on it to make decisions, yet we cannot escape the limitations it imposes on us. Some people rely on it to maintain their "true selves" amid constant change, others rely on memory to balance or escape from the present, some believe we can find the root of all psychological problems in memory. And there are groups of people who rely on the same memories to maintain their identity with each other. But none of them can define memory precisely. Memory is one of our most central components, and we use it in different ways but rarely realize how much we rely on and use it.
Art creation that genuinely touches the core of time and memory is never a definition of time and memory through painting, sculpture, or installation but rather a "complete experience" of the creator's response to changes in time. The concept of "complete experience" was introduced by the pragmatist philosopher John Dewey. Unlike the trivial things that fill our lives, which are difficult to specify their beginnings and endings and hardly give us any emotional fluctuations, "complete experience "begins with the experiencer's "subjective impulse" and ends with the "completion" they feel.
Thus, the art creation on the theme of time and memory does not need a clear meaning or story as a starting point, artists need to start their work only with the urge to "do something about the changes brought about by time and their own memories", such as imagining other possibilities of the past or reconstructing a certain past in which they dwell. The impulse It begins with such an impulse and ends when the artists feel "complete" in their process and artworks.
However, the artist cannot avoid the fact that they are working in the "present" and that the influence of the "present" is inevitable, and that they are not the same as those in their memories, carrying ideas and concerns from different time. The proposition of "time and memory" is destined to be a dispute between "the present" and "memory".
"Time and Memory", which at first glance appears to be a topic oriented towards the past or the known, is actually a true "innovation". The memories that give the artist the impulse to create are not the pre-determined end of their work but the material on which their work, and by manipulating them the artist contends with the "present". The end of this dispute is not a victory for either the "present" or the "past", but a fusion of the two sides, with the "present" being given the air of the "past". The "present" is given the air of the "past", and the "past" is given a new lease of life in the "present".
The "now" is given the temperament of the "past", and the "past" is given a new life in the "present".
This exhibition presents the complete experience of five creators who have responded in their way to the changes they have encountered in time. The works on view do not define time or memory but instead, present how we all have to deal with the changes brought about by time and what role memory plays in our response to these changes. Although artworks are necessarily the subjective product of their creators, this exhibition is not a "self-congratulatory" work created by the creator for himself. The exhibits are visualizations of "time and memory" from different perspectives, which are insufficient for a mature understanding of "time and memory." However, they can give the viewer a new perspective on learning and thinking about time and memory, Perspective.
