Time represents an important coordinate in this research, in which documents and materials become the monuments of a history that has to be isolated, grouped, made pertinent, put into relation with a context, to form sets. Petra Feriancová thus introduces a method that brings out the mechanisms that grant forms of knowledge. The slice of a tree trunk with coins from her father’s collection arranged on the rings that reveal the age of the tree also represents the need to measure and catalogue, applying objects of affection as tools to sublimate reality, translating it into universal and sacred reflections.
