Slowing Down Time is an experimental collaborative project by four artists working with different media: textile, sculpture, choreography, installation, animation, and moving image. The first iteration of this work was exhibited at Articulate Project Space from 10 March - 6 April 2014. Bring the project to the TAEM Gallery, the experimental structure (starting with one work by one artist and evolves over the exhibition period as a new contribution is added each week) will carry into this new iteration from 25 July to 21 August.

Three artists, Jo Law, Louise Curham, and Sue Healey will be exploring the premise of slowing down time by creating a palpable time zone where the experience of time is decelerated through directing audience’s attention to minute details, residues of memories, objects – the poetics of the everyday. Working in the TAEM Gallery space, the artists will respond specifically to the site. Focusing on the play on domestic, everyday aesthetics, and the medium of the fragments, the artists aim to transform the space and its experience with scattered objects, scattered images, scattered movements, and scattered memories.

The ambition of Slowing Down Time is to open up a dialogic space for artists to create works together. In this exhibition, other artists working with diverse media including sound, music, movement, and words are invited to participate in a number of associated events.
