Time to take time

1 September, 2003

“Time to take time” is a tempting invitation, a desperate scream or perhaps a suggested reflection, in the first person, that Christina Föllmer presents at Fabrica Features. The young German artist tackles the classic theme of “stolen” time testimonials, reflections and thoughts that people of different eras, from Seneca to Wilde, have left us on this theme and (literally) sews them on to our daily lives. These treacherous threads penetrate our reality, sounding warning bells that none of us can escape. Christina takes truth out of context (in the footsteps of great artists like Jenny Holzer), plays with typography and, fundamentally pokes fun at our sick relationship with time.
