TITLE: Christian Marclay’s The Clock

BRIEF ABOUT: This marks the first Midwest presentation of The Clock since its London debut in 2010. The Clock is a video work that literally tells the time by splicing together thousands of movie scenes depicting clocks, watches and other timepieces, so as to track the passage of time over a 24-hour period.

     At each venue where the work is installed, the piece is synced to the local time—so when a scene shows 12 noon in The Clock, it is actually 12 noon for those watching the video. Ranging from iconic movie scenes to more obscure film excerpts, The Clock features “cameo appearances” by such stars such as Marilyn Monroe, Gregory Peck, Jimmy Stewart, Charlie Chaplin, Nicole Kidman, Robert Redford, and scores of others as they watch or talk about the time. The clips were painstakingly culled over the course of three years.
