The Persistence Of Memory
Inspired by Salvador Dali's »The Persistence Of Memory«, the fourth chapter of the Tell me project talks about the passing of time through the art of painting and movement.
Clocks abstracted in eternal time, angry with him, angry with his task, angry with themselves. Material objects that cannot take any more and succumb to duplication. Sixty movements with three different hands, sixty movements and no more. How not to feel frustrated with such work, repeat yourself and fall into automatism. Even for a machine, habit is the greatest punishment. The Persistence of Memory. »Four clocks and three different hours, moments that do not advance in time. Two people and three different hours, memories that do not advance in time.« In this way, for Salvador Dalí time is subjective, it does not happen the same for everyone.
