In ancient Greece Kairos represents the moment of opportunity, the perfect instant. If you can´t catch their forelocks in time, they vanish without you – following behind is not possible due to their bold back of the head. Chronos however preserves the order and chronology of history.

Although our daily live depends on the idea of time as a linear process, in our physical reality we are only able to precieve it as a neverending present. In the NOW we are compositions of multiple exposure of all gone versions and future potentials of self.

This contradiction became the foundation of a collaboration between Stefanie Gerstmayr and Rolf-Maria Krückels. In the exhibition space murals communicate with drawings in ink and objects.
