Summary/Abstract: In his most recent project, Kamler returns to the problem of time. He enables us to experience time of art through the direct experience of regular linear series ("Telemann" /2011/) and dynamic cycles that change in response to various stimuli ("Continu-discontinu" 2010 /2011/). He draws a connection between these “permanent projections” to movement frozen in art installations. This is an original understanding of the return to art contemplation in analogy to music. Through the exploration of analogies between the art forms, Kamler overcomes his old pessimism regarding the medium of animation. Trying to answer the question posed in the title of the exhibition, he enters the territory of music, as he believes that time can be tamed not just (or not only) through the repetition of the myth of beginning (as he argued in "Chronopolis" /1977-1982/) but also through the paradox of music.
