‘The Clock’ by Christian Marclay

how much can you fit into one day? is this a 24 hour interpretation of the new york minute? seriously. but when i unsuspectingly came across this piece at the hayward last fall, with no recognition other than the fact the artist was represented by White Cube, i was refreshed and impressed. it’s been a while since we’ve seen something that is both welcoming to experience and provides an experience that makes you a little more conscious of your own. basically that time moves at different paces. christian marclay won the golden lion award at this year’s venice biennale for this time obsessed version of  a day. by kl
