1859 kilo, 15 h 51’ is a site-specific installation by Emma van Roey made of sand, wire and wooden boards. Van Roey creates visual imagery that provokes the viewers into a confrontation with their own human condition.
The fascination with time and my own attempts to get a grip on it comes from an incapability to adapt to the contemporary Western conception of time. The present is a phase in the evolution from the past to the future - an interval in which everything is questioned. By re-questioning, re-thinking and re-formulating our plans, we feel the 'here and now' as an uncertain and undetermined time.
