The Exhibition: “About time”

Time, from conception to end, is something we all experience. We all go through it.

Time allows for subjects to form in different ways through both cultural and personal interpretation.

“About time” explores this behaviour by showcasing a collection of Noah Lamp Latif’s new and old works.

The recently developed ‘crop paintings’ embody the visual language of our times.

By taking iPhone screenshots of images found on the internet and rendering them in oil paint on a panel.

Noah Lamp Latif, About time

Exhibited together with renditions of ‘bomb paintings’ which were created by blowing up paint tubes with c4 bought on the dark-web.

Symbolizing the strangeness of a world where everything can be obtained through means of technology.

This combination of works indicates the absurdity and abstraction of our times.

As well as the role technology plays in this.

Noah asserts:

“We live in very extreme times, therefore the artworks should be reflective of this status, we live on crossroads of big changes, and therefore we should reflect it in our art, the art of our time, about our time”.

Together with NUC Gallery, we partnered with Noah to provide the opportunity to showcase this exhibition in St. Moritz, Switzerland.
