“Picturing Intuition” is an exhibition that highlights the connections between intuition and the element of time in the process of making, exhibiting and experiencing art. This applies to the individual pieces in the exhibition, to how the artworks engage with each other and interact with the space of the gallery and, more importantly, to how they connect with the viewers’ own intuition through their sense of time.
Art works are images, objects, assemblages and events that take up a specific space, but they also possess invisible and unbound temporal qualities. The act of encountering art in a gallery associates the viewers’ present and conscious time to the temporality embedded in the works of art and that of the space of the exhibition. It provides the connection through which the visuality of the work in relation to the space it occupies can then be experienced. Without the establishment of this connection, no image or impression can find a place or meaning in the viewers’ consciousness.
The relationship between intuition and temporality is not void of politics. Often the establishment of social intersubjectivity is impossible unless it is guaranteed, beyond logic and language, through the process of indirect swaying and influencing of subject’s intuition through the sense of time.
“Picturing Intuition” is curated by Mo Salemy.
