About the event
Reading Stones: Anne Krinsky | Carol Wyss | Susan Eyre
Whitechapel First Thursdays
Three artists explore materiality and the passage of time in Hackney's Oldest Building.
Anne Krinsky, Carol Wyss and Susan Eyre present an exhibition of site-specific works in response to the history and architecture of Saint Augustine’s Tower. Through their respective interests in the land, the body and the cosmos, Krinsky, Wyss and Eyre explore relationships between time and materiality. Their exhibited works provide singular “readings” of phenomena such as the erosion of gravestones, (re)configurations of human bones and the cosmological orbits of rocky bodies by which we measure time.
The nature of time itself was a concept that St Augustine of Hippo grappled with in his philosophical texts sixteen centuries ago and is still perplexing us today; namely, how to equate the subjective experience of time with an objective understanding.
