The exhibitions in Warsaw and Brussels will open at the same time as Jenny Chert’s first child is born. Her child, a baby girl, is due January 3 but could arrive at any moment.
Since we cannot know the exact date, the exhibitions’ opening will be announced immediately after the birth. And since we cannot be in two places at the same time, the exhibition’s reception will be held first in Warsaw. We will then travel west and have the Brussels’ reception.
The works will be spread out over both exhibitions. Some works will be split in half and synchronized. Some works, maybe an ocean, will travel back and forth. Some works, like 47 small bronze bells, will be re-distributed throughout both cities.
It is impossible to know when this moment will occur. Here the temporality of living (the time of breathing, sleeping and loving) does not correspond to the scheduling of professional time – a time where the details of whole days, months and years are pre-determined in advance, where durations are defined with exact beginnings and endings, where there is no room for spontaneity, rupture or derailment.
What is the calendar for the unknown? – David Horvitz
The exhibitions will take place at Jan Mot, Brussels and Dawid Radziszewski Gallery, Warsaw and are organized by Julia Wielgus. www.janmot.com
