Time is a measure where events are ordered from the past through to the present and into the future. Indefinite and continuous events unfold and guide us forward in a linear fashion. Time does not stop, nor can we move through or against it; only with it. In fictional narrative, time travel is used as a tool for changing or altering the ways the standard chronological sequence in experienced. Are there other ways in which we can move through time? Can this linear line be broken to explore alternative ways of perceiving time? The exhibition THE TIME TRAVELLERS looks at these questions and poses more.
The artists in this exhibition Sarah Crawley (MB), Annie MacDonell (ON), and Mandy Malazdrewich (MB) use different techniques to manipulate chronological time in order to disrupt and reimagine narrative structures. THE TIME TRAVELLERS explores attempts to illustrate the multifaceted and complicated nature of understanding and negotiating the perception of time. The works in this exhibition become allegories for looking at non-linear narratives where past, present and future compile, fall apart, and overlap.
