I've seen three parts now and each time I just don't want to leave. There is an overwhelming feeling of tension and anticipation. You're constantly scanning for the next clip from a movie that you've seen before. Don't ask why, don't think about it, just come, see it, tell all your friends.

About The Clock
Winner of the 2011 Venice Biennial Golden Lion, Christian Marclay's The Clock is a cinematic tour-de-force that unfolds on the screen in real time through thousands of film excerpts that form a 24-hour montage. Generating all-night lineups in galleries in London and New York, it has been described as "...a sort of Holy Grail of contemporary art, a thoroughly rigorous, intellectually and formally challenging work that nonetheless has the popular appeal of a Hollywood blockbuster."
Access to the exhibition space is subject to availability; limited seated and standing room. Undetermined waiting time is to be expected. No reservations. No photography or recording.

Christian Marclay was born in California, raised in Switzerland and is now based between New York and London. He became fascinated with collaging sound and image in the late 1970s while he was a student at Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston and Cooper Union in New York. Marclay played music with bands in underground club scenes, using records and turntables. His innovative artistic practice continues to combine aural and visual sources with a keen sensibility toward complex editing, sampling and looping techniques. Christian Marclay's experimental work with sound, video, and film has been extremely influential on a younger generation of artists for whom the idea of digital sampling and mixing recordings is now a given.
