“Eternity is a mere moment, just long enough for a joke.”
“Ever since the twentieth century has become influenced by fast social changes which often were short lived all that once seemed obvious and logical has disappeared. Due to these changes, that forced the individual to find itself a flexible and independent approach, eternity and durability as we know it have been sidelined. ‘The moment’ stresses the sense of the temporary and vulnerability and finds itself in a battle against eternity. ‘Now’ is the time. Nothing lasts forever.“
The Spur of the Moment is a Nestarchy project in colaboration with Koen Delaere.
Koen Delaere is one of the driving forces behind ‘Whatspace’, an artist initiative from Tilburg without a fixed location or programme. Whatspace organises ad hoc events and exhibitions that occur where the Whatspace-members reside. Projects are realised at short notice and on a whim.
