Figures of Time involves the intersection and impact of private and public events. This journey through time is punctuated by graffiti, urban poetry and radio news broadcasts. Three places/spaces and contexts of the word cohabit, as they bear witness to this, our time.
A suite that attempts to draw closer to Tadeusz Kantor’s vision of”individual human life, modest and poor, defenceless yet magnificent.” As Kantor writes: “It is only in this individual human life that truth,holiness and grandeur are preserved today. They must be saved from destruction and oblivion. Saved from all the powers of this world.”
