Time Bends as We Come Closer is a project about the curvature of the spacetime and our relationship with the force of gravity. In classical mechanics, gravitation is an attractiveforce that acts between bodies with mass, but since the general theory of relativity it is understood as the deformation of the geometry of spacetime caused by a mass (the mass bends the spacetime). Gravity is an invisible force and, contrary to what one might think, it is very weak–the weakest among the four fundamental interactions in nature. An interaction that has shaped us (chemically, physically and intellectually) in our daily and cosmological environments. Employing a variety of media (sound, neon, text, video, installation), Pedro Torres proposes different configurations that are intertwined in the gallery space.
Pedro Torres (Brazil, 1982) focuses his artistic practice on issues related to the concepts of time, distance, memory, language and image, using a variety of media in the development of his works and research projects. He is interested in working with these elements-coordinates in a combined and subjective way, where aesthetics and concept are balanced.
