French professor Fernanda Negrete will show how Horn's installation "Library of Water" (2007 – present) and Lispector's poetic meditation Água viva (1973) propose an aesthetic reading practice that exposes us to what Gilles Deleuze (drawing Paul Cézanne's quest to paint "the instant of the world") defined as the sensation of time. Aesthetic time, Negrete will show, emerges for the reader as an effect of perspectival decentering that dissolves the opposition between self and world to rethink intersubjectivity fluidly.
