Carpe Diem - New Christian Marclay edition

Here is a new edition from Christian Marclay at the white cube.  Looks fun.  All details below

Christian Marclay's practice often revolves around the manipulation of sounds and music. 'Carpe Diem' is an instrument which resembles a time piece, but instead of being a working watch with mechanisms and a clock face, the artwork is a flat silver reflective face, with ball bearings within, creating a jarring, jangling sound much like a rattle or defunct tik-tok.

'Carpe Diem' was released in conjunction with the opening of Marclay's most recent exhibition at White Cube, which features the 'The Clock', a video work edited from thousands of fragments of films to create a 24-hour film, shown in real time. It is constructed out of moments in cinema when time is expressed or when a character interacts with a clock, watch or just a particular time of day.

Edition of 40
Sterling silver, steel ball bearings, leather
25 x 3 x 0.8 cm

£ 950.00 +VAT

Whitechapel Gallery releases a host of new prints

The Whitechapel gallery has released a whole range of new prints recently for our delight and delectation, and mighty fine they are.  Nip over to their shop to have a look at the new editions which include releases from Jeremy Deller, Jaime Gili (pictured), Simon Patterson, Donald Urquhart, Peter Peri and Mark Titchner.  Also they have released a print by Saatchi favourite Chantal Joffe which is a quite stunning screen print.  That doesn't seem to be on the site yet but they were showing it at multiplied so it must be on the way shortly.

I'm back

Yes I know it has been a bit shaky and yes I know I should really keep the content of this more up to date but after a diet of art in October - Frieze, Multiplied, Moniker, Hells Half Acre etc. I feel newly enthused to post more on the blog.  Hope you enjoy it.

Although I will continue to post mostly on the contemporary art scene in London I also plan to give you the reader heads up on new contemporary art editions being released, especially in the run up to xmas.  xx
