Christian Marclay: The Clock

Exhibition and Shows

1 Feb 2019 to 10 Mar 2019

The Clock is a 24-hour video installation created from thousands of clips of clocks, watches and other references to time from film and television. These are masterfully edited together and synced to the present moment in one mesmerising collage by visual artist Christian Marclay. The result is an epic journey through cinematic history as well as a functioning timepiece.

Minute by minute, hour by hour, hundreds of characters are jolted awake by alarms, run for trains, wait for lovers, or dream strange dreams. Stitched together from hours of cinematic history, The Clock gifts audiences the addictive joy of recognising favourite actors or scenes from beloved films, as well as being wildly compelling and dream-like itself.

Since debuting in 2010, The Clock has become one of the most seen and celebrated artworks of our time, winning the Golden Lion at the 2011 Venice Biennale, and attracting critical acclaim and enthusiastic audiences at gallery showings across the world.

Visitors can watch The Clock at ACMI daily, free, from 10:00am – 5:00pm, with 24-hour screenings every Thursday.
