Tacitly, almost understatedly, (Residual Time) explores a sense of unthreading and untimeliness, a coming-apart made manifest in objects that combine tender manipulation with hi-tech materials and processes of development that are difficult to control. 

A divided space. A performative gesture of unthreading, or destabilizing, by hand. A fading fingerprint. A tapestry from a material used in radio antennas, heating elements, electromagnetic shielding and safety wear. A short film on the sheer invisibility of its subject matter in a recent study on dark matter phenomena.

Gwenneth Boelens (b. 1980 in Soest, NL) lives and works in Amsterdam. Boelens’s work has been exhibited at MIT List Visual Arts Center, Cambridge (US), Ludwig Forum, Aachen (DE); Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam (NL); ACCA, Melbourne (AU), KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin (DE) and elsewhere. She attended the Koninklijke Academie voor Beeldende Kunsten, Den Haag (NL), and the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam (NL).
