Intentions
Time reminds us of many key words, such as speed, history, change, and sustainability. Through this exhibition, the correlation between time and humans will be examined by preparing various points of thought about the meaning of time given to human beings.
Content
Human beings have ceaselessly explored “questions of time.” Many of the questions that great philosophers from East and West have sought to unravel concern the nature of time. The title of the exhibition “Repetition and Difference: About Time” alludes to a famous concept put forth by philosopher Gilles Deleuze, but it is also a fair expression of how we think about time. Just as life is full of “repetition,” a few “differences” notwithstanding, every individual dwells in a perpetual present. However, nobody replays the exact same things, all day, every day, throughout life. In this regard, the title of the exhibition implies diverse meanings of time.

Many ancient Western philosophers, including Saint Augustine of Hippo, distinguished Kairos (καιρός), or the subjective time perceived by individuals, from Chronos (χρόνος), or physical and objective time. Viewing “subjective” time as distinct from chronological time resonates with East Asian philosophy that posited the world as a harmony between yin and yang, in contrast with Western epistemology that regarded time as a subject for scientific analysis. Adopting “time” as the key theme, the artists participating in this exhibition have explored diverse views of Chronos, or the present moment, and Kairos, or subjective time, in some cases taking on both concepts in parallel, and in other cases focusing on just one.
