Intempèries / Hinterlands

Aleix Plademunt

Hinterlands accompanies the exhibition "À propos du temps" by Aleix Plademunt at Galerie Olivier Waltman, Paris, from January 7 to 30 January 2021.

The text is an excerpt from a conversation between Aleix Plademunt, Antonio M. Xoubanova, Carlos Marques-Marcet and Borja Bagunyà after a three-and-a-quarter-hour reading of Matter at Escola Bloom in Barcelona on 18 September 2020.

"[...] Thinking about it in a literary way, I find that we always write the past as well. But at the same time, when we filter this past through language, subject it to the laws of syntax, and open it up to the memory of everything that each word carries, the past happens again, but in a new way. It’s almost as if the form releases a contained, latent temporality which would explain why – for Proust – the life truly lived is the narrated life. There is a relationship between form and temporality that goes through some kind of renovation, I’d say. Of projection to a future that is, paradoxically, the possibility of fully living the past."
