Shared Time (2021)

Residency at the Carrillo Gil Art Museum

Almost eight billion human beings inhabit this moment. In a very short period of time we have managed to establish the footprint of our collective presence in terrestrial ecosystems. Despite the hardships, this planet is warming, the Amazon is burning and the poles are melting. Thinking we are on the brink of extinction is not an exaggeration or a pessimistic metaphor but rather a well-founded forecast. They have calculated that the 4, 5 or 6 degrees that the temperature would rise by 2050 would mean the extinction of 94 percent of humanity. With such a collapse on the forehead, it is also natural that there is denial about it or an excessive fantasy for thinking that technology will save everything.


Modernity, now, is in ruins and civilization is at an inflection that announces a new era. Along with many of us, countless species will disappear.

How do you live then? What reality and reflection can a museum enhance and incite in this context?

Our partial answer is Shared Time, a biologically inspired experiment that proposes a symbiotic process: cooperation between members or parts to think and act together, without hosts or parasites, in an essay of mutualism in becoming.


For ten months the space will be inhabited by heterogeneous artists and groups who will make the museum a place of creation in the broadest sense: energy mutating into form. It goes without saying that we will not limit ourselves to exhibiting finished, auratic works or objects, but rather the creative processes in their splendor of imperfection, which sometimes, and only sometimes, become matter. Under these premises, the notion of the visitor as a spectator is useless and his active involvement is urgent: these processes are possible, alone, by conspiring collectively.
