Christian Marclay | The Clock

Christian Marclay
The Clock
London, UK: White Cube, 2010
720 pp., 23.6 x 17 x 2.8 cm, softcover
Edition size unknown

I'm in Winnipeg this week, in part to participate in tonight's panel discussion about Christian Marclay's The Clock, currently on view at the WAG. Organized and moderated by Jonah Corne, the panel includes myself (speaking about my own, ah, complicated relationship with The Clock), filmmaker Irene Bindi and sound artist Crys Cole (who's performing tomorrow night at Interaccess in Toronto).

The discussion will be followed by a 24 hour screening of the work, with free popcorn.

The above title, featuring texts by Darian Leader and Honey Luard was - despite the international interest in, and acclaim for the work - only available in the UK, briefly. Only three years old now, the artist book/catalogue is already being offered on the secondary market with prices ranging from $932 to $2500.00.
