Sylvia de Boer - Kairos
Kairos, the experience of time. ‘Real’ time (Chronos) exists only as a concept, where every second has the same duration. I search for moments when time confuses, with titles such as ‘The impossible awareness of falling asleep’, ‘Losing a dream in waking up’, and ‘The past is always present’.
Under the title ‘Momentum Mortis’, the moment of death, I attempt to capture my own near-death experience in paint. Nothing is as moving as time, nothing as unreliable as memory, the place where time accumulates.
