About

Christian Marclay's acclaimed installation The Clock (2010) has captivated audiences across the world from New York to Moscow.

24-hours long, the installation is a montage of thousands of film and television images of clocks, edited together so they show the actual time. It is a thrilling journey through cinematic history as well as a functioning timepiece.

Following several years of rigorous and painstaking research and production, Marclay collected together excerpts from well-known and lesser-known films including thrillers, westerns and science fiction. He then edited these so that they flow in real time. When watching The Clock you experience a vast range of narratives, settings and moods within the space of a few minutes.

The work will be shown for free during the day. Once a month the gallery will stay open overnight to allow the full 24-hour installation to be shown. Full details will be available nearer the time.
