Newsworks reviews Angel Nevarez and Valerie Tevere’s video installation Memory of a Time Lived Twice:

“‘Memory of a Time Twice Lived’ by the New York-based artists Angel Nevarez and Valerie Tevere is both an examination and a reinterpretation of the classic, French art film ‘La Jetée’ (1962) by Chris Marker. The science fiction tale of a man from the future who travels back in time to stop the coming apocalypse is also a love story about romance that could never have actually taken place.

The film’s nameless protagonist meets a young woman in the halls of a natural history museum — ‘a museum filled with ageless animals’ — that looks remarkably like the Wagner Free Institute.

‘Walk into the Wagner, and you’re walking into the past, into a space locked away since the Victorian era,’ said Nevarez.

‘The taxidermic animals are paused in time. They been frozen in time,’ added Tevere.”
