Last days for ‘The Clock’ screening at SALT Beyoğlu
Christian Marclay’s ‘The Clock’ can be seen at SALT Beyoğlu until May 25.This is the last weekend for “The Clock” (2010), an exceptional video work by artist Christian Marclay, screened at SALT Beyoğlu. The video is on view for 24 hours a day.
In “The Clock,” Marclay samples thousands of excerpts from the history of cinema that indicate the passage of time. Wristwatches, clock towers, buzzing alarms, and even the occasional cuckoo clock are stripped from their original narrative context and re-edited chronologically into a 24-hour montage that unfolds in real time.
The result of three years of intensive research and production, “The Clock” has been called “a masterpiece of our times” by British daily The Guardian, and was awarded the Golden Lion for best artwork at the 54th Venice Biennale. It has been exhibited internationally.
