The point of the departure for the exhibition All at once is the schism between the open and absolute perception of time on one side, and the structured linear one on the other. The exhibition functions thus as a platform where the invited artists can question the perception of time with their artworks.

Even though our society is built upon a logically understanding of the time as linear, often, as individuals, we have an intuitive feeling that the time can be understood differently in a more open way.

The scientific understanding of light and its speed, also influences our understanding of time by making it a relative phenomenon.

The exhibition is curated as a total installation built up as a site-specific scenography with three different spaces, simulating respectively the past, the present and the future. The theater-like art installation is created on location by the Danish artist Nina Wengel with artworks with strong references to furniture and interior design objects. Simon Hehemann participates with a cable car installation, which moves across and connects the three time-divisions in the staging of the exhibition space. Anna Lena Grau and Julia Frankenberg bring to the exhibition a sculpture focusing on the notion of process, performance and metamorphosis. The guest artists Sophie Dupont and Thierry Geoffroy each contribute with an artwork displayed as a part of Nina Wengel’s installation.
