The Masterpiece of Christian Marclay at the Tate Modern

The Masterpiece of Christian Marclay at the Tate Modern
#Art

The visual, audio, hypnotic experience of Christian Marclay conquers the public at the Tate Modern. Since 2010 - the year he appeared on the contemporary art scene - The Clock, the work-exhibition lasting 24 hours, continues to offer a stunning journey in the history of cinema, transforming “cinematographic time”, artificial, into real time. Engaging the passions of cinema enthusiasts, but not only, the work of Marclay quite often changes the concept that many have of time. Almost one-hundred years of cinema, including thrillers, westerns and fantasy films are included in the work of the American artist, granting the public a vast gamma of narratives, environments and states of being. Winner of the Leone d’Oro at the Biennale of Venice in 2011, Marclay creates his performance using vinyl records and other musical mediums which he manipulates and deforms to create special effects. On the nights of Saturday 6 October, Saturday 3 November and 1 December, the Tate will stay open 24 hours straight to allow visitors to fully enjoy this colossal work comprised of pieces of various films, along with the presence of a watch or some other reference to the time that coincides with the moment that the piece in question is projected. Human activity itself dictates every instant - between 3 and 5 in the morning, the stars sleep, from 4 to 5 pm they move about on trains, planes and autos, after 6 pm they sit down to eat. Keep an eye on the time during the show and everything will seem incredibly surprising.
