Esther Brakenhoff (NL), Marta Colpani (IT) and Nishiko (JP) will perform a time-based exhibition during which they will deal with the passing of time in relation to space and object. During three weeks, Brakenhoff, Colpani and Nishiko look for evidence of time’s passing in the objects and structures that we inhabit and that we create: in this case the room of Corridor Project Space.

In “Present time station”, the three artists will collaborate for the first time, distillating the time preserving qualities of their different ways of working. By shifting the attention towards the time and space itself that belongs to the making process, they will research performativity in the practice of art production, and its preservation in the physical artifact.

The public is much encouraged to witness the situation of working and to participate to various events on location, rather than come looking only at the “final” result during the finissage. Finally, the space in which Brakenhoff, Colpani and Nishiko will work, will also be exhibited during the finissage, yet not as much as a finished exhibition but rather as an expression of presentness and action, an intrinsically temporary state of things, where traces of what happened before can be found marking the space, as bits of data offering themselves to possible histories that can be told.

For this project Corridor Project Space has longer openings hours. We are open from Thursday to Sunday, between 12:00 - 19:00.
