What does it mean to talk about "one's own time"? Is that equivalent to "one's own change"? Wouldn't then one's own time be unstuck, and follow an internal logic where duration is no longer a homogenous concept?
Julieta Aranda's work is often concerned with both time and the conditions of subjectivity. In her exhibition at Gallery Niklas Belenius Between timid and Timbuktu: (a time without events) she explores the conflicting ideas about time to try to propose a position between change and possibility, a temporal vacuum that functions as a ripe nothingness, where subject, event and truth can emerge.
According to Aristotle, attempts to stop time are futile, for we cannot stop change. But what if all change were to stop? Would that be the end of time too?

Between Timid and Timbuktu: (a time without events)
Gallery Niklas Belenius
In her current work, the uninhabited reflections of mirrors into mirrors, printed on mirrors, argue for an equivalence between empty time and time without change.
