ABOUT THE WORK
The first publication “ of Frédérique Albert-Bordenave balances between being a book and an artwork. Taking hybridity as a starting point, it consists of a collection of fragments of different writings, disciplines and media exploring the topics of space and time. Casual phrases used on a daily basis, such as ‘it’s about time’, ‘time will tell’ or ‘time flies’, become objects of study, seen through cultural references such as cinema, academic texts, novels or from the unexpected architectural perspective of the artist’s balcony. Albert-Bordenave ambitiously gives shape to an age-old discussion of space and time, both elements that are defined by their indefiniteness, which is visualized by the very shape of the book. The transparent pages can be read individually, but also appear as windows to the next page, allowing us to see the architecture of the space-time continuum a book itself essentially is.
