A recess implies a suspension of time, or a break in formal proceedings. It is also an indented space created by natural or human building, a space connected to but apart from the rest. This indent in time or space defines an approach to exhibiting contemporary moving image works, drafts and creative texts.
Curated by Olivia Koh of recess.art, a new work is featured on recess presents every week as part of a staggered release throughout the exhibition period. Similar to the timing of a physical gallery exhibit, each work plays for a 2-week duration. As one work is phased out on the site another appears, so that the sequenced works inform each other like a string of sentences, or a body spinning in the landscape 一 a collection of meanings that are not definitive but always on the move.
