TOWARDS EVENINGS

The Clock


《向晚时计》




Engraved brass plate, halogen bulb
46.8 x 46.8 x 10 cm


镌刻黄铜片,卤素灯珠
46.8 x 46.8 x 10 cm


The Clock functions as a timer for the on-going progression of this long-term project. The brass copper plate, marked at the center, is divided into six sections indicating the six chapters in the clockwise order. Each chapter marks in small divisions. The light beams under the plate correspond to the current status of each chapter. The clock serves two purposes: a guide for the audience, and a timetable for the artist to document her ongoing creative process. Upon the completion of the project, the clock will be fully illuminated and transformed into a blazing sun.

The clocks completed to date: OCAT Xi'an, Xi'an, 2018 / BANK, Shanghai, 2017

《向晚时计》提供了一个可持续更新的结构,为长期项目进行阶段性计时。铜盘以顺时针方向等分为六章,每章内再分为小节。每一道射出的光对应一件已经完成、并正在展出的作品(小节)。于观众而言,它是向导的地图;于作者而言,它是创作长跑的时刻表;待项目最终完成时,整个时计将被点亮,它将化身为一颗完整的太阳。

目前已完成:OCAT·西安馆,西安,2018 / BANK,上海,2017
