Five Billion Years with: Francois Curlet, Philippe Decrauzat, Ceal Floyer, Tony Matelli, Jonathan Monk, Hiroshi Sugimoto // Curated by Marc-Olivier Wahler March 8 – May 1 2004 / Opening Reception Monday March 8, 6 – 8pm

Astronomers recently hypothesized that five billion years ago the universe experienced a “cosmic jerk”, and started to expand. This cosmic acceleration occurred, it has been hypothesized, when the ‘dark energy’ grew to a point where it could dominate the gravity of matter, and hence made the universe expand. As Einstein put it, “There is no fixed point in the universe.” This five billion year pattern of expansion has imposed upon us a perpetual state of indeterminate position – a universe of gliding. Five Billion Years plunges into the heart of this expansion and proposes a collective exhibition that tries to adapt to the speed imposed upon us by the indeterminacy of our situation and elaborate an aesthetic of gliding.
