Art critic and curator Pau Waelder’s latest exhibition, Real Time, is a real-time art network that challenges the idea of quantum physics. Opening at the Centre d’Art Santa Mònica on January 28th, Waelder brings together various artists to investigate the concept of time within today’s fast-paced society. His collection of contemporary art, in which ‘real time’ plays a leading role, explores the ways in which we measure time and aims to challenge our perception of reality.
Among the featured artists is Katie Paterson, a Berlin-based visual artist from Glasgow. Her 'Timepieces' display shows a series of nine clocks that tell the time on all the planets in our solar system, including the Earth’s moon. The durations of the day range from planet to planet, from the shortest on Jupiter to the longest on Mercury. Each clock is calibrated to tell the time in relation to the other planets and to the time on Earth. Another selected piece at this exhibition is Martin John Callanan’s 'Departure of All', a vertically-mounted LCD screen showing all international flight departures around the world in real time.
