COLLECTIVE EXHIBITION AT THE DIEGO RIVERA GALLERY, SAN FRANCISCO (CA) 2015
Julia Guzmán's sculptures explore the three dimensional representation of time. How can the slow or fast passage of time be revealed and even controlled? Throughout the study of multiple material identities and their language, she invites you to interact with the discrete complexity, tension and balance offered by her time models.
Continuously Present is an exploration in the idea of getting intimate with the transient nature of time, the way we interact with it, and how it affects our connection with out surroundings. By dissecting and revealing the present, the fast and slow passing of time, by continuously revisiting and investigating the same site, or through heightened awareness of ephemeral and intimate moments and objects of everyday life, time is no longer an instrument, but an extension of ourselves, a manifestation of our presence and a token of our relationship with our environment. This exhibition is an invitation to take a walk with us and interact with our photographic installations and sculptures and get intimate with your present time.

Have I ever passed by you
without your notice?
I tend to be subtle.
My presence determines your existence,
and though I turn you into being,
you control me,
listen to me,
