After a guided tour to the exhibition "Our Time is Out of Joint" artist Ana Linhares guides us through their diagram "Moving in Crip Queer Temporalities". In this activity, we will delve into the mythology and the perception of time, challenging chrononormativity’s linearity. Loosing ability, loosing control, loosing place, loosing pace, loosing time. Mourning the body and mind. Moving through notions of physical and neuro divergence, we question what it means to be disabled, what is worth treating or what is meant to be taken care of. Resting as a radical act of care; self-care as an act of resistance against a world whose time is out of joint. Can safe spaces be created in those hours left at the margins of the normal? We will be seeking possibilities of transgression for the unfit bodies.


Ana Linhares (Póvoa de Varzim, 1990) lives and works in Utrecht, and has been involved in projects, residencies and exhibitions in Portugal, Spain, and the Netherlands. Holding a BA in Fine Arts, from the School of Fine Arts – University of Porto (2012) and an MA in Fine Arts & Design, from the HKU – Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Utrecht (2019), Ana Linhares was represented by KubikGallery (Porto) from 2013 to 2023. Working and collaborating in different projects and contexts, including residencies, archive research and articulation with artistic institutions, Ana Linhares has received, among other awards and nominations, the 2018-2019 Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation Research Grant and was nominated for the 2018 Novo Banco Revelação, at Serralves Foundation. Ana Linhares works with archival practices, storytelling, deconstruction and the intersection of narratives and language. The artist develops experimental practices and research connected to various areas of the Humanities (History, Literature, Philosophy, etc.), using installations, diagrams, and montage/compositions to suggest and explore new interpretations and possibilities. An example of this is the long-term project “On Constellations”, with several editions between 2017 and 2021. The artist’s research interests have extended to the articulation of past work intersecting with Crip and Queer theory and practices at an institutional level. Ana Linhares has been exploring the connections and articulation between Crip Queer Temporalities, narratives, theory, history, and gender theory. The different stages of the work have been presented at the Casco Art Institute (Utrecht), Hotel Maria Kapel (Hoorn) and Springboard Art Fair (Utrecht).
