ACMI PRESENTS
Christian Marclay: The Clock
Take an epic journey through cinematic history in the award-winning 24-hour video installation

23 Jan – 10 Mar
10am–5pm, open 24 hours on Thursdays
Free

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. 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 100 years 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.
