Falke Pisano


WONDER-WHAT-TIME-IT-IS, 2017

Thursday, October 19th - 3pm
Duration: 40 minutes

Falke Pisano’s performative installation takes as a starting point a short story by Edgar Allan Poe to address the limits that modernity, as a frame of thinking, has set for the possibilities of conceiving of change outside its normative framework. WONDER-WHAT-TIME-IT-IS deals with language, thinking and perception and problematizes the idea that language as an expression of thought can disassociate itself from culture and history. In a narrative performance Falke Pisano takes to questioning those ideas that have become powerful because they have been naturalized, and as such (as “nature”) have come to be seen as the basis on which humans can establish culture and society.

In collaboration with Ellen de Bruijne Projects, Amsterdam.

Petit Palais, 75008 Paris
