The Clock (2010) – Christian Marclay #time #teaser #video [#geekgirl]

The Clock is a 24-hour video installation created from thousands of clips of clocks, watches and other references to time from film and television. These are masterfully edited together and synced to the present moment in one mesmerising collage. The result is an epic journey through cinematic history as well as a functioning timepiece.

Minute by minute, hour by hour, hundreds of characters are jolted awake by alarms, run for trains, wait for lovers, or dream strange dreams. Stitched together from 100 years of cinematic history, The Clock gifts audiences the addictive joy of recognising favourite actors or scenes from beloved films, as well as being wildly compelling and dream-like itself.

Since debuting in 2010, The Clock has become one of the most seen and celebrated artworks of our time, winning the Golden Lion at the 2011 Venice Biennale, and attracting critical acclaim and enthusiastic audiences at gallery showings across the world. ACMI in Melbourne has it in situ and the exhibition will commence 23 Jan through to 10 Mar, 2019.

Admission is free and on a first-come, first-served basis Due to limited capacity, please be aware that there may be wait times No food or drink is allowed in the gallery Don’t miss a minute! See the full 24-hours of the work when we stay open all night every Thursday. The exhibition will be open from 10am Thursday to 5pm Friday throughout the season.
