The stabilizer bar and the time stretchers is a project that I began in 2011 for the Moroccan Pavilion at the Venice Biennale. This project is an “assembly-line” action with a stabilizing bar that allows performers to make actions that produce time-objects. These ways of measuring time are exhibited in order to be seen, and the viewer completes the work by “looking,” by making “this time” exist in a continuous loop in front of his eyes.
