Knockdown Center is pleased to present The Clock is Taking a Nap., a mural by Amie Cunat as a part of FiftyTwo Ft, a series of long-term wall-based artworks in the East Corridor.

About

The imagery within the mural is sourced from drawings of churches and other buildings in New York City. The work depicts building-like structures tightly packed across the wall as if they had been extracted from a dense urban neighborhood where houses, commercial buildings, and places of worship respond and form to their adjacent architecture. In some areas, the structures’ contours bend as if their frames have been pulled out, leaving behind the suggestion of a jelly-like skin sagging from its own weight. In others, the forms maintain a sense of buoyancy, appearing to float or sway against the colloidal skyline, all in service of a larger atmospheric force that pushes this imagined landscape into contorted positions.
