Christian Marclay: The Clock
Copenhagen Contemporary Gallery, Copenhagen
From 1 June to 3 September 2017

 

Copenhagen Contemporary (CC) is delighted to bring Swiss-American artist and composer Christian Marclay’s The Clock (2010) to Scandinavia for the first time. This video installation is recognised as a contemporary masterpiece and won the Golden Lion at the 2011 Venice Biennale. In addition to exhibiting The Clock during regular opening hours, CC looks forward to presenting six special 24-hour screenings where audiences can experience the work in its entirety, covering the full span of a day and night.

The Clock is a 24-hour montage comprising thousands of scenes from film and television that feature everything from wristwatches to clocktowers, from buzzing alarms to the cuckoo clock – along with other references to the time. With The Clock, Marclay deconstructs and challenges the narratives of individual scenes by removing them from their original context and inserting them into another, where time itself becomes the protagonist.

Synchronised with the local time of the exhibition space, the work conflates cinematic and actual time, revealing each passing minute as a repository of alternately suspenseful, tragic or romantic narrative possibilities. At the same time, our natural, established perception of time is tested and challenged by the work’s many different narratives, which have no beginning or end. The Clock first premiered in London in 2010 and has since been exhibited worldwide in more than twenty venues, including the Centre Pompidou, Paris (2011); Museum of Modern Art, New York (2012); San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (2013); and Guggenheim Bilbao (2014).
