PRESS RELEASE FRNLENG

In her most recent work The Stabilizer Bar and the Time Stretchers, Lebanese-French artist Ninar Esber sets out to explore multifarious versions of how matter and action can be compounded to unearth whatever they can tell us about the fabrication of times (in the plural sense) and the dimensions at play in conventions. Taking as a fictional starting point a story of her walking on an imaginary path that stretches further out with each step she takes, while holding the stabilizer bar to which all new ‘actions’ that emerge during her advancement are attached, she narrates the ongoing gathering of an expanding collection of contrasting enquiries.
