Performing Time

Ivan Moudov’s Performing Time is a video piece based on an almost 24-hour-long performance in which the artist moved the arms of a clock throughout a whole day without stopping. Not using any instrument, the artist followed his own subjective perception of time and his body took over the role of the clock’s mechanics. During the finally 23 hours and 15 minutes of the performance, requiring a high degree of concentration and self-discipline, a clock’s accuracy and objectivity are substituted with the demonstration of subjective time passing.
