Toilet Theories

The Institute of Time: scientists are working hard to find a way to stop time. They listen to the toilets and translate tone into numbers. They constantly research to achieve their goal. But can they make it in time before time runs out?

Anna Schlechter draws on the absurd as a concept that deals with how aspiration and understanding fail to meet reality. Her work often contains a performative aspect as well as references to the canon of Western art history. The video piece “Toilet Theories” reflects on time as an everyday experience, characterised as absurd and evading immediate comprehension.
