Borrowed Time, Jerwood Space, London, UK
As the title ‘Borrowed Time’ suggests, the resulting works reflect on the uncertain nature of our contemporary economic and ecological moment, while also alluding to wider historical patterns and elemental forces. Never has there been a time, perhaps, where we have borrowed so much against the future economically – from the loans and mortgages of domestic realities to the sophisticated economics of financial derivatives. And never has there been a moment, perhaps, where that feeling of living on borrowed time, of a clock ticking louder and louder, has reverberated so ominously ecologically.
Screening of ‘On Darwin Road’ as part of the Jerwood/FVU exhibition ‘Borrowed Time.’
