Valeska Soares
La Ligne du Temps

Relying on repetition and repurposed materials, Soares works to interrogate time—its measurement, its passing, and its meaning. With copper wire stretched out across the room like a clothesline, Valeska Soares’ La Ligne du Temps creates a timeline out of fluttering, old book pages. Read upon the pages of this delicately wrought installation are linguistic approaches to time and its phenomonologies. Stretched together, and made linear through their installation, these book titles make up a dysfunctional timeline, a poetic but impractical meditation on the way we measure out and experience days, weeks, and years.
