Angela Detanico e Rafael Lain _ Timewaves (chapter II)

In Timewaves, words appear and disappear over time. Clock-like movements break the syntax of a page from Virginia Woolf’s The Waves thus creating new readings. The work shows the hours of the place where it is displayed from the opening text of each of the 9 interludes from Woolf’s book, that occur from the dawn to dusk of a day.

Appropriating Woolf’s text, Angela Detanico and Rafael Lain provoke the viewer to decipher new codes coming from the verbal language. Form and meaning require time and attention from the observer, who becomes an accomplice in the construction of the work.
