Taking hybridity as a starting point, the works presented by Frédérique Albert-Bordenave consist of a collection of fragments of different writings, disciplines and media exploring the topics of space and time and their respective limitations. Those limitations led to the acknowledgment and appreciation of an alternate interpretation of time and space through shadows. In Albert-Bordenhave’s work, shadows become a tangible and perceptible tool for the discernment of time in space, manifesting the desire to give shape to different ways to occupy earth and to exist in it.
