ART NOW

Exploring the theme of experience in Art with a focus in interactive installations.

"Untitled" (Perfect Lovers) 1991. The amazing artist Felix Gonzalez-Torres created this work shortly after his partner, Ross Laycock, was diagnosed with AIDS. These two identical, adjacent, battery-operated clocks were initially set to the same exact time, but with time they have fallen out of sync. The clocks are transformed into personal and poetic meditations of ever changing human relationships. We may start in perfect sync with someone but naturally we begin minutely drifting away from our starting point just like the two clocks that slowly grew apart. We either decide to renew our relationship by mending our ways (i.e. setting our clocks back) or seeking other people who match the state, "the time", that we are currently in.
