The Arctic is Melting
3 March - 29 AprilFREE
‘The Arctic is Melting’
The Roommates London
March 3 – April 29, 2018, LONDON
Next 4th of March The Roommates will present «The Arctic is Melting», the first exhibition of Marc Larré in London and the first exhibition of 2018 at The Roommates.
For this exhibition, Larré presents his works in video “Sincronías” in which he aims to offer a partial view of a given historical moment that questions the hierarchies of information and, above all, the myth that runs through contemporary Western society: the myth of the linear progress of time.
In questioning the temporality through which we apprehend the real, we are confronted with the difference between a Modernity that has lent its name to the whole of Western history – and whose agenda is to rule the world appealing to the ideals of progress and continuous self-improvement – and an age that starts from radically different perspectives. In this sense, “Sincronías” operates as an anti-monument. Synchrony eludes/resists/combats two of the basic assumptions attached to the idea of the monument in the modern world: a linear reading of time and the notion of prior cause.
For the occasion, Eloy Fernández Porta has written the text: FREE PRESS! About Marc Larré’s “Sincronías”.
