Sometimes you can be nostalgic for what is yet to come. A strange feeling of longing for a future yet unknown.
Sometimes a space can do this, a space laden with time, a space filled with the past that is moving fast towards a future. A space inhabiting multiple temporalities, multiple tenses.
Silver Sehnsucht will critically reflect on both the odd merging of past, present and future that the German word Sehnsucht connotes, as well as the ways these are reflected in the surrounding area of Silvertown itself.
It will explore the bittersweet feeling which emerges from the increasing speed of contemporary world, the feeling of loss for something unknown in the anxious process of ushering in something new.
