Christian Marclay: The Clock, White Cube Mason's Yard

by Oliver Basciano

ArtReview, Oct. 2010, no. 44, p. 94

This review of Christian Marclay's The Clock looks at how Marclay's video investigates how the construction of movies relates to time, and how it relates to Bergson's idea of the 'perpetual present.' The repeating nature of the video also brings attention to the formulaic nature of movies.
