MATTER OR TIME is an international exhibition project of contemporary art in the heritage environment of Ennejma Ezzahra in Sidi Bou Said.
MATTER OF TIME gathers artistic positions that thematize the impact of time in nature and culture, natural and artificial materials. It addresses the changes in growing, ageing, and fading. It includes artworks that encompass music, performative processes and all kinds of time-based artistic expressions. MATTER OF TIME refers to the productive aspects of time as well as it will refer to dust, decay, and disintegration. The works’ scale range from miniature drawings to architecture projections. The art mediation program of MATTER OF TIME seeks to realize a discursive space in order to enable every individual visitor and participant to experience and interact with space, the art and its context.
