NOT OF THE NOW | Jeremy Bakker

Not of the Now is an exhibition that brings together new work around the experience that time today is increasingly contradictory and incongruous. Through video, modified objects and drawing these artworks aim to open up a space to explore perspectives that fall outside of the logic of time-as-commodity.

Art Exhibition coming up at BLINDSIDE in Flinders Lane precinct, Victoria, Australia.
From Wednesday 01 August 2018 to Saturday 18 August 2018
Launch Thursday 02 August 2018, 6-8pm

A confession: I had recently caught myself in a unique moment of irritation, incessantly tapping at my iPhone screen trying to hurry along the slow-to-load meditation app. Apart from being a sign of work to be done on my journey to mindfulness, perhaps this is indicative of an internal conflict familiar to many. This conflict is a discomforting sense of being entangled in the pervasive narrative of commodified time valued by how well we ‘use’ and ‘spend’ it. Not of the Now is an exhibition that tries to unravel some of this incongruous and contradictory terrain of time today, and open up a space, even if fleetingly, for a consideration of temporal perspectives that are deaf to the urgent calls for productivity and efficiency.
