Chaya Czernoiwn plunges her vast creation HIDDEN in a subaquatic landscape, devoid of all human presence and pierced by sonorous monoliths. In this writing of observation and perception, silence plays an essential role. Here, this silence, not often a form of rhetoric, measures the distance to the object and imparts the work’s spatial dimension.
In the words of Gurnemanz’ prophecy made to Parsifal, “here time becomes space”.
