Seconds. Minutes. Hours.
Too fast or too slow or too much or not enough.
Writer Pamela Lee describes the term chronophobia as “an experience of unease and anxiety about time, a feeling that events are moving too fast and are thus hard to make sense of.” It is these anxieties and fears that are explored in the exhibition Time will tell, through Rudi William’s photographs and Zainab Hikmet’s temporal sculpture piece the two artists examine the mounting pressure of time and the knowledge that eventually, time will run out for us all and we never know exactly when that will be.
