'The Clock Which Will Solve Every Problem in the World', Kunstraum Dornbirn (AT)

We are all going to die. The end is near. Second by second The Pendulum reminds us of our mortality. The giant time piece is like a hibernating bear: beautiful and perhaps even endearing, but deadly nonetheless. Its sound is more a hypnotic pulse than a nervous ticking; every 15 minutes a hammer striking a gas cylinder sounds an industrial death knell.

The Pendulum consists of an elaborate system of cogs which is powered by two suspended pallets carrying cement bags that weigh some 1,000 kilos. The counterweights are attached to the roof of the exhibition space, making it part of the work and physically encapsulating visitors in time, the building becomes a part of the clock.

Atelier Van Lieshout artworks on view: Pendulum (2019), Le Balzac (2017), Calgon (2017), Daalderop (2017), Mensch (2017) and others.
