Don’t Miss-London: Christian Marclay “The Clock” at White Cube through November 13, 2010

American-born (and Swiss-raised) collage artist Christian Marclay‘s “The Clock,” on view at White Cube through 6pm GMT tomorrow, has elicited an overwhelmingly positive response from viewers and critics alike. So much so, that the gallery recently staged three continuous viewings of the piece (in addition to the one going on now), allowing audience members to experience the full trajectory of Marclay’s meticulously-researched project. Over a span of more than three years, Marclay extracted film and video footage in which the time of day is captured and represented on a vast array of clocks, both digital and analog. He subsequently synced the clips so that the image-sequence accurately reflects the hour and minute of the day, in real time.
