I could watch this for hours. (That might be a slight exaggeration, but you know what I mean. Tangential question: How long qualifies as “for hours” on the internet?)
A beautiful family portrait.
Julianne SwartzSurrogate (JS), Surrogate (KRL), Surrogate (ARL) , 2012
White cement, grey cement, mica, and 143 clock movements
Dimensions in inches:
JS: 68 x 18 x 12
KRL: 72 x 24 x 14
ARL: 40 x 17 x 8
"Each figure corresponds to the dimensions of a particular body: my own, my husband’s and my daughter’s. One hundred forty-three ticking clocks inside the cement blocks give the figures an audible and erratic pulse."
Thinking of Julianne Swartz's work today, which I'll have the pleasure of seeing tomorrow at the IMA. This is:
