Kinga Jaczewska - Time It Takes

Time It Takes which balances between installation and performance, is a continuation of Kinga's search for ways to capture and physicalize the ‘non-event’ time - time which not fragmented by the multiplicity of short lasting and vibrant events, continues its not fragmented flow. ​

With Time It Takes, Kinga searches for continuity of her own body and for ways to approach it as a duration. By focusing on its physical weight Jaczewska explores different ways of grounding. Through this research she wonders if by allowing gravity to (re)enter her body, she could resist the speed of the progressive time and allow rhythms different to those of the production-oriented regime, to come up to the surface."

One of the main questions behind Jaczewska’s current research is a question posed by a philosopher Byung Chul – Han: “What will the pace of the future be? (…) Will the human being, after a short period of whizzing, return to the earth as walker?

Kinga Jaczewska (Warsaw, PL) is Antwerp based artist.​

Trained as a dancer and choreographer, Jaczewska’s work examines the relation between movement and perception of time. Fascinated by the idea that everything is in constant flux and transformation, with her work Jaczewska aims to bring focus to the overlooked spaces between the attention catching events and to continuity they often carry within. By exposing presences and movements hidden besides such focal points, Jaczewska looks for ways to make the Non-Event visible. ''how to bring focus to the 'in between' without turning it into an event?' is a main question behind Kinga's research and practice.
