1708 Gallery, Richmond, Virginia, United States in partnership with El Centro de Exposiciones Subte, Montevideo, Uruguay has launched L-a-s-e-n-i-o-r-a-i-n-d-i-c-a-r-a by Liliana Farber and curated by Roxana Fabius. Farber exhibited at 1708 in 2020 with her solo exhibition Proximal, Distal, Adrift. This project is a continuation of Farber’s practice that envelopes geopolitics, time, and legacies of femininity.
L-a-s-e-n-i-o-r-a-i-n-d-i-c-a-r-a is a new work of net-art that invites users to participate in a mutual understanding contract, in which the website and the participants agree to establish a single time management criterion based on Western conceptions of planetary, chronological coordination.
Through their participation, each user will leave an indelible time stamp on the site that will coexist with the stamps of all past and future visitors, thus creating a chronological multiplicity that reflects on the physical distance that has defined the months since March 2020, confronting us at the same time with the illusion of closeness that characterized our movements before the arrival of Covid-19.
The project was simultaneously launched by 1708 Gallery in Richmond, Virginia, United States and El Centro de Exposiciones Subte, in Montevideo, Uruguay at 12:00 EST / 13:00 UYT on November 4, 2021. It will remain open until February 4, 2022. During this period, each person who accesses the webpage will leave their time stamp marked on it. As of February 5, the work will remain accessible as a document of the times and places of its users.

L-a-s-e-n-i-o-r-a-i-n-d-i-c-a-r-a es una nueva obra de net-art de la artista que invita a sus visitantes a participar en un contrato de entendimiento mutuo, en el que sitio y participantes acuerdan establecer un criterio único de manejo del tiempo, basado en concepciones occidentales de coordinación planetaria.
A través de su participación, cada persona dejará una estampa temporal imborrable en el sitio que coexistirá con las estampas de todos los pasados y futuros visitantes, creando así una multiplicidad cronológica que reflexiona sobre la distancia física que ha definido los meses desde marzo 2020, enfrentándonos al mismo tiempo con la ilusión de cercanía que caracterizó nuestros movimientos hasta la llegada del covid-19.
