Vertical Thinking

This exhibition rotates around the installation The Refusal of Time, produced on the occasion of Documenta 13 in Kassel and presented in Italy for the first time at MAXXI.

Reconfigured for the spaces of the museum’s Gallery 5, the installation is made up of music, images and Chinese shadows, with a pulsing Leonardesque machine at the centre.

The Refusal of Time was born out of a long-term reflection on the concept of time developed by William Kentridge together with the physicist and scientific historian Peter L. Gallison and has been realised in collaboration with the composer Philip Miller and with Catherine Meyburgh for the video processing and editing.

Dancer and choreographer Dada Masilo worked on the choreographies. The work proposes a universal reflection on time and its many metaphors.
