Medium Tempus

Zimmer Gallery, Tel Aviv -  03.12.2015 - 02.01.2016

Medium Tempus is a term that describes "intermediate time," the same period of centuries between ancient and modern times. The philosopher Petrarch, who coined the term, created in his words a new "myth" that refers to that intermediate time as a dark, opaque time dominated by ignorance, superstition, and dark religion.

Gilboa, on the other hand, often deals with the concept of intermediate time or intermediate space, as an idea in itself - in the time of the expectation between the dream and the awakening, the place between the conscious and the unconscious, the fears and the reality, or as she puts it: Medium Tempus is a state of mind where most of us are captives.

The body of the works presented in the exhibition includes etchings, drawings and video works (based on animation) relating to liminal situations and places between ecstasy and death, between a wish and it’s fulfillment, between what is culture and what is wild.
