The stolen hour


Exhibition 2018
It explores two streams of focus - the silenced voices of women caught in fascist periods,and the decision by the Spanish dictator Franco to have Spain synch time zones with Nazi Germany. Which both aesthetically and politically abandoned the internationally adopted Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) and mainly seen as a gesture of loyalty to Berlin (and a break with London).
Therefore, the exhibition “The Stolen Hour” explores decisions made in the past and how they continue to resonate in our present. To this end, the exhibition reflects on perceptual issues of what has been taken and never given back. What course corrections are needed, and the dialogue much needed to start this restoration, as perhaps a process of reconstruction.

The scope of my work is very broad because it is in permanent dialogue with the changing social rhythms, time perceptions and political landscapes.
