"Tarik Berber’s Heterotopias of Time is a journey through the woven threads of Blacks Members Club's history. In search of lost space, the still-life objects of his scrutiny spring into life and in a form of sustained evocation of time passed, they jump into his drawings as storytellers. The drawings, produced on site of the Club during the artist residency, not only unravel its history, they tell it. These hang like mirrors, reflect the opposite view, a contra-campo, at the same time, they reflect remembrances of time passed. Similar to Gaston Bachelard, Berber demonstrates that space can be poetry and redefines the rectilinearity of the house by recording only the echoes and auras of its past inhabitants, highlighting both, their absence as well as, their presence."
