Christian Marclay at White Cube

For those who missed the epic White Cube installation that was American multi-media artist Christian Marclay’s The Clock back in 2010, we can only sob for you. A 24 hour film made up of snatches of cinema moments that showed or referred to every minute of the day in real time, it was quite simply one of the most original, magical and unforgettable art projects we’ve seen (we even went about five times at different times of day to see various of the hours). Which is why we’re desperate to see his latest creation for the gallery’s site in Bermondsey: a vinyl factory that stages concerts, records them, live presses records, creates limited edition silk-screen sleeves (by Coriander Studio) and sells them for a mere £25 – all in the gallery. Saturday and Sunday afternoons are the allocated times for the concerts, performers of which will include the London Sinfonietta, and who will each respond to Marclay’s artworks around them by composing newly commissioned and improvised works. Music to our ears – just be aware, attendance for the concerts are on a first-come-first-served basis.
