For All the Time, for All the Sad Stones

Artist: Nicola Lorini
2019, 7', color

Inspired by its Anatolian Weights and Measures Collection, Pera Museum hosted a contemporary video installation titled For All the Time, for All the Sad Stones between September 5 - November 24, 2019 by artist Nicola Lorini. The installation was centered around a video with sound, and includes a set of sculptural objects made of different materials including sand, silicone and deer bones. Having taken its starting point from recent events, in particular the calculation of the hypothetical mass of the Internet and the loss of weight of the model of the kilogram and its consequent redefinition, the installation reminded us of the post anthropocentric understanding of time and history in these days when our social practices are fundamentally being changed.
