The Timekeepers Meditation… Performance by Lindsey Barlag Thornton

August 2, 2014 @ 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Mind the Gap participating artist, Lindsey Barlag Thornton, will perform the timekeeper’s meditation… in the Cleve Carney Gallery.

Using the troubled voyage of Ernest Shackleton’s “The Endurance” as a metaphorical/symbolic departure point, the timekeeper’s meditation…explores our relationship to the dissonance between objective and subjective time.

The artist states, “[During the seven hour endurance performance] one hundred pounds of ice slowly melts atop a hand-made wood table, dripping into tin buckets, as my body is present on the ice, meditating on time, past, present, and future happening simultaneously as ice melts, and as I keep time – seconds… minutes…and hours — as they are actually experienced and surreally imagined.”
