“There are two sisters: one gives birth to the other and she, in turn, gives birth to the first. Who are the two sisters?”

How do we produce meaning and expression within stationary moments and pockets of slowness? Days push off into nights is a series of situations that compose a common space of stillness. Evoking a suspended period at the intersection of writing, solitude, and self-reflection, the artworks are born from and point to the necessary recesses often buried in our hurried lives. Pieced together, they form a collection of experiences (eventful and meditative alike) that also mark the passing of time, unfolding inside the exhibition space.
Days push off into nights invites visitors to imagine and experience these rare contemplative moments on one’s own, and, when called for, in shared company.
Days push off into nights will present the works and performances of a host of international and local artists at Spring Workshop from February 28 to April 26, 2015. It is open to the public free of charge.
