PLEASE NOTE: This is a ticketed exhibition 
International Body of Art are excited to announce their first exhibition of 2024, ‘In Pursuit of
Some Phantom’. This exhibition acts as the first chapter of a three-part installment that will
continue throughout the year, with each exhibition adding to an exploration of temporality
and its ties to the condition of being within our present world.
Lending its title from a quote in Marcel Proust’s ‘In search of Lost Time’, this exhibition sets
out to investigate Time as a subjective experience, one entangled with personal, political,
and religious thought. Through the lens of twenty-one artists from around world, we aim to
bring a wide variety of cultural perspectives, paying homage to the preservation of different
modes of being, each distinct from the traditional Western notion of linearity.
In Western thought, Time has been bound by rigid constraints, such that it may only move
upon a straight line, ticking away in staccato fashion on a steady road to progression. Yet
Time in this manner takes on a bulldozing persona, where differing ideologies, or ways of
relating to the world, are diminished, cast outside of the paradigms of this fine line. The idea
that the path that we are on is the path that must continue (conceptually and physically) is
one rooted in colonial thought, and one that ought to be regularly interrogated.
Approaching the topic from IBA’s characteristic trans-disciplinary approach, the exhibition
will include elements of visual art, alongside sound, scent, taste, and touch. Throughout the
show we hope to present space to be creative about your most intuitive experiences. To
dive into the past and throw it into the future, to look into yourself and to know that you
are looking, to feel time passing and to experience time passed, to Search For Some
Phantom, and to shake hands with it too.
