Watch Time in Real Time with Christian Marclay’s “The Clock” @ The Polygon Gallery
Jul 5 @ 10:00 am – Sep 15 @ 5:00 pm

The Polygon Gallery presents Christian Marclay: The Clock, a cinematic montage synchronized with actual time on a 24-hour clock.

Showing daily from 10am – 5pm / closed Mondays.

Critics claim The Clock is “mesmerizing”, “maybe the greatest film you’ve ever seen”, “an epic feat” and many, many more.

Recognised as one of the most important contemporary artworks of our time, The Clock is an audiovisual tour-de-force. Presented in a custom-built cinema within the gallery, the work montages film and television footage from the last 70 years. The time represented in each clip is synchronised with actual time, allowing The Clock to function as a 24-hour timepiece. Christian Marclay won the coveted Gold Lion Award at the Venice Biennale in 2011 for this now-famous artwork, recently presented at the Tate Modern, London.

Intricately edited in both its visuals and sound, The Clock is created from thousands of film fragments collaged into a minute-to-minute tapestry of modern life, with appearances by many familiar Hollywood and international screen actors. Pre-dawn scenes include dream sequences; morning scenes depict characters waking up, drinking coffee, or heading out to work; evening shots show parties, dinners, and theatre shows. The pace of The Clock reflects daily rhythms, building toward noon, varying in the afternoon, and utilising both images and soundtracks to herald the work’s dramatic midnight climax. The mesmerising experience of following various narratives, settings and moods within the space of a few minutes, makes time unravel in countless directions at once.

24-hour Friday Night Screenings

On select Fridays, the gallery will stay open overnight for 24-hour screenings. During these overnight screenings, visitors will be able to see the evening and early morning sections of the film.   Don’t miss out and secure your spot now.

Dates include:

July 5
